Happy Mothers’ Day

And a tribute to the awesome mothers in my life.  Thanks for all you’ve taught me.

Mom Ruth Blau and mother-in-law Nora Fox at our wedding in 1993.

Grandmother Edith Blau sometime in the 1980s.

Grandmother Helen Farr Smith (Robertson) Love sometime in the 1950s.

And my sister-in-law Terri Robertson with my niece & nephew and their Aunt Amy — my favorite title!   Photo ca. 2000.  The kids are graduating from middle school & high school, respectively, next month; I have waaaay more gray in my hair; and somehow Terri still looks the same!

Late comment:  What does it say about my obvious genetic heritage as a nerd that both of my *grandmothers* are wearing suits?  Between that and the fact that I was partially gestated at a law school, my inevitable nerdiness was predestined.

My mother is lucky I wasn’t born with a copy of Black’s Law Dictionary in my hands!

    Thanks for the warm & loving tribute to your female lineage.

    Nora: I think we’re both doing pretty darn well for a couple of over-70 dames. Oooops! Did I let out a secret?

    As I prepare for the 10th Circuit on Tuesday (excuses, excuses!) I thought I’d just re-run last year’s Mothers’ Day post. Love you, Mom, Nora, Terri, and all the other amazing moms I know.
