As I look at this photograph above of my sweet Dad and myself – I see so much in the actual photograph. We are celebrating a new year, at my brother (Gary) and sister-in-law’s new home (Cindy). The clock on the wall (is a family heirloom) it was a main stay in my home growing up in Anaheim, California. I believe the clock it over 60 years old, and a treasured piece as we grew up. The clock was the how we learned to tell time and it served as a strong influence over the many years in the Zager household. Behind my shoulder is my beautiful niece Alex, getting ready to depart to Paris for a new role as an Au Pair for a french family.
New beginnings – I am now a Mother-in-law twice to Jessica Lynn (seen above in Santa Monica) and my other new daugher in law Jessica Marie (seen below). So happy to step into a new role – as I had always wanted daughters.
Two new sets of newlyweds – all grown up and ready to begin a new chapter. I feel blessed. So happy for both couples and so proud of them each.
Through the years I have learned about the different stages of being a Mom. The last 10 months seeing both of my sons marry absolutely incredible women and moving forward into adult life; I know I set a good example.
Here’s to moving gracefully into the next decade – stepping into 60. So thankful to my wonderful family, work colleagues, many friends and neighbors who are helping me celebrate the whole month long of September.
