This one’s for the moms! We would never be where we are, and be able to do what we do without you. Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Lots & lots of love,

Perhaps the origin of my swan-love, despite their spitting and snapping. When I was a teenager, we hatched ducks in our kitchen. Our favorite was Babette, she took naps under the hammock and went for walks around the block with us. My mother loved all creatures, great and small, and as a little girl she had to be taken home from the circus crying because they wouldn't let her pet the tigers.

When I was a kid we had a sailboat, I believe this photo was taken at Mystic Seaport - a favorite spot for my parents. I remember leaning over the bow of the boat, looking at jellyfish. In this photo I've got one heck of a smile and my mom's shorts were perfect in 1986.

This is my mom Elizabeth and I at the Macy's parade sometime in the late 80's. I had spilled scalding hot chocolate all over my face. Rather than pack it in, she just threw me on her shoulders and kept it moving.

“We just went on a family trip to Italy; it had its ups and downs, but far and away, the best part was hanging out with them. And they really like being with me. They’re nine and eleven, and there could be an age limit to that, but now they’re fun to hang out with, fun to talk to, they’re really curious and interesting and they have their own opinions about stuff. I do not want that to end, and to me it’s about how you preserve that without being overbearing.”

My mom is the best because she raised my sister and I by herself, which is pretty awesome. This, and almost all our family photos, were taken at the beach because we were literal beach babies!

This is me and my mom in a park in Long Island when I was a few months old. As you may or may not know, I love ducks, and my mom took me to see all the duckies. I must have loved them even back then!!

My mom said I like to lean back and have lengthy conversations with her, pre learning how to talk. Long, babbling conversations with the adults.

Here is my mama and I in 1991 or 1992. She's my best friend and biggest inspiration, whose love and generosity knows no bounds. Love my mama!

I love my mom because she is a smart and strong woman with deep affection for her family who has instilled in me a sense of curiosity and the freedom and support to follow my own path and build a life for myself that is wholly different from her own.

My mom is not a big fan of being photographed, so the pictures I do have with her I treasure! This very low quality picture perfectly captures a beautiful chilly day at the beach when my cheeks were at their fullest. I may have grown into my cheeks, but my mom still looks at me the same way -- which used to embarrass me a bit, but now makes my heart melt. Love you mama!

This was taken in Mexico. We were on a tour and we taken to this cave with a waterfall. We were the small few from our group to have the courage to jump into the freezing water and swim the fishes. I guess I know where I get my sense of adventure from!

These were both taken back in my hometown in Mexico. The family trips we did to my grandpa's ranch are the happiest memories I have and what shaped me as the person I'm today. I remember my mom used to make this amazing dishes of what the animals and lands provided over there (even making her own cheese).

 Originally, I had refused to take a picture with the ducks because my twin brother had warned me that ducks bite (perhaps this is when my fear of birds began...), so my mom had to stand behind me in order for us to get a good photo. She immediately puts me at ease and comforts me in all aspects of my life. She's my person :)

The first photo is from a Spring weekend visiting our friends farmhouse in New Hope, PA. It was such a beautiful warm Sunday - real spring weather- and I spent the whole day outside with Junie. The second photo is Sally and me with our mom cooling off in our pool at my childhood home. My dad was taking the photo. Darla, HR & Office Manager & Sally, 219 Bedford Team

My mom and I always have the most beautiful getaways together - this one in particular - we went to Stinson Beach and Point Reyes outside of San Francisco. It was a day filled with sunshine, beach walks, shopping and ice cream cones - all of our favorite things. We sat on a bench and giggled while we people watched as ice cream dripped down our fingers. A bystander took our photo to capture the pure happiness we always have together. I’ll never forget, nor take for granted, those sweet, simple moments with her.

This pic was just when we were visiting my nanny, who had a fun costume jewelry collection. My mom is simply the best because she is always there to help me through anything and encourages my self-esteem when it's needed the most. ;)

This picture was taken when I was four months old. My parents used to take me on a lot of hikes. This one was an overnight hike along the pacific crest trail in Oregon. My dad would carry all the supplies and my mom would carry just me.

My mom and I are a prime example of "it's complicated." Even so, she loves my unconditionally, and I her. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms who allow their kids to be themselves—even when they're not picture perfect.
Briana, Merchandising Team

My mom has always impressed me with her strength and beauty! Without her support I wouldn't be where I am today! This photo is from when we(my sister, my mom and myself) dressed up in different decades for my sister-in-laws bachelorette party. We had fun roaming the streets of San Francisco in our vintage attire. Always a joyful moment with my mom.
