Happiness is: Maxine, looking lovely03/05/2012 at 4:43 pm | Posted in family, Happiness is | 2 Comments
When I opened this photo in my email yesterday (with the subject line “Maxine, looking lovely”) it took my breath away.
Isn’t it beautiful?
This is Marc’s Nanny, Maxine, for whom Lily is named (middle name). I never got to meet Nanny, but I know she was a very special person.
I love that we have the gift of this photo. I’m hoping to frame it for Lily’s room, just as Sophie has a beautiful portrait of her namesake (and maternal great-grandmother), Muriel.
Maxine and Muriel. Lovely, indeed.
