In honor of Mother’s Day, we reached out to our blogger friends and asked them to share stories about their moms. To kick off the celebration, we’re shining the spotlight on our resident design expert, Dagmar Obert.
As a surprise for Dagmar, we asked her daughters to share a few things about their mom. Here’s what they have to say:
Share a favorite memory you have of your mom.
Anna: My mom used to work on putting the draperies together at all hours of the night. I could always hear the intense mechanical slam of the staple gun, and the nightly news drifting through the heat grates. This does not happen anymore, but I look back fondly on that time, and will always remember those moments.
Abigail: My favorite memory of my mom is all the walks that we took in the summer of 2010, before my older sister’s wedding. On these walks, we talked endlessly. I love taking walks to this day, because they remind me of my mom.
Alysa: We had just driven through desolate but stunning New Mexico. We had gone 180 miles without seeing a living person, animal or even car on the road (not kidding). My mom had us stop in this town in the middle of nowhere so we can tour this little historic mansion. The motive was two-fold: so we could learn the history of the family, and observe the interior decor to qualify the trip for a tax write-off for her business. While this is one example it is far from an isolated incident. My sisters and I have literally toured America via history living rooms and parlors.
