I think lots of us can't conceive that our moms were at one time young, vibrant and exciting--women who had concerns other than packing lunches, driving kids to school or grounding us when we acted up. This book is an acknowledgment & celebration of the mom that once was (and is likely still there if we look!).
It makes a great gift for Mother's Day, especially with a gift card to a clothing store, a salon or spa.
