On My Mind

Mamma Mia

I’m in Rome visiting my daughter. I’ve only ever been to Rome with my mother; we would stop here for a day or two on our way to someplace else (like Egypt or China). As we wander around the city, I think about those earlier trips and how I am doing many of the same things that Mother did with me — it makes life feel like a lovely continuum. When I bought a pair of Tod’s loafers for my daughter this morning, I knew that they would become a memento of this trip, a tangible memory like the Gucci bag my mother bought for me ages ago. And, it’s the memories that really matter in the end. Thinking of you, mum. xjp

  • Similar thoughts for me. No physical mementos, but rather what I hope has been instilled and will lasts well past this generation. My request was a brunch at home, my girls’ planning and preparation. We’ve produced plenty together for them to feel some confidence to take the baton today and I was so pleased. A little messy as expected, but they worked together and made the loveliest Sunday morning with a beautiful setting, quiches, steamed artichokes, and mimosas. Most rewarding was the terrific conversation. Continuum indeed! Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers on KIC.

  • Happy Mother’s Day, Preston!
    Those gelatos must be amazing and it is funny how many people are taking pics of them. Did you have some? Could you please share info on your chain belt? I am having a hard time finding one

  • Happy Mother’s Day Preston! I remember your post about traveling to Cambridge with your daughter. It inspired us, and as a result my daughter is attending U of St Andrews. Is your daughter working in Italy?

  • Martha Elana D- the chain belt is Saint Laurent from last year. I’m sure they have new styles, I bought a smaller link belt for the beach this summer.
