My Mother, Marilyn Monroe

Hard to believe that this is the same woman who gave birth to me, but here she is in her full fifteen years old glory, on Scratby beach or somewhere else equally exotic in 1952. 

Talk about glamorous. 

I remember my heart always picked up speed when I saw this photograph.  It was like looking at somebody else - which I guess we all are before we become mothers ourselves.

Happy Mothers Day, Mum.  And thanks for... you know, lots of stuff I never realised I had to be thankful for.

Miss you x

Gorgeous photo :o) My mum was equally glam when she was young - I like to think I take after her! (Obviously I'm kidding myself.)

I know, weren't black and white parents just SO glamorous, Karen? I used to really think my Mum and Dad were proper film stars!

WOW! So glam! You come from good genes, Debs.
