Happy Mother’s Day

We thought we would share a few photos from #HfC1955 that seem to fit the day.

A few more pictures from the Home for Christmas box

#HfC1955 in the lovely box of photos there was an envelope with some pictures from Germany! I would love to share what the inscriptions on the back say, but they are in German script, and even my husband (who does read some German) was unable to translate.
