In honor of Mother’s Day I wanted to post some pictures of my beautiful mom Baiba Lenss when she was a teenager in the 1950’s. I remember looking at these pictures when I was little and asking my mom if she was a movie star! She looks so composed and glamorous. Women were so much more put together and stylish during that time. When I was a teenager in the ‘90’s all I could do was throw on some rayon floral dress or Beatles t-shirt and try to stand up straight ( no I won’t be posting pictures of this!)
But even at my most awkward and self conscious, my mom always told me that I was beautiful. She always told me that I could be anything I wanted, encouraged my dreams, and taught me that it was always better to respond to people with love and kindness. She was and still is an inspiration to me.
I love you mom!
Happy Mother’s Day!!!
