This Moment {See Beautiful}


Mom calls my human sis and Moi her beautiful girls.
The silhouette on the dresser was made when she was 5 years old.
RECENTLY MOM TOOK SOME NICE PICTURES  AT A 
CAMERON VILLAGE IN RALEIGH
It opened in October of 1949....
(don't tell her I told you but I heard her say she is nine months older than this shopping center)
SHE SAID CAMERON VILLAGE
HAS HAD SEVERAL 'FACE LIFTS' OVER THE YEARS
SUCH AS THE ADDITION BEAUTIFUL
LIVING WALL GARDENS LIKE THIS ONE
THEY ARE DEDICATED TO VICTIMS
OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE


MOM SAYS SHE HAS HAD THE SAME FACE SHE 
FOR ALL THESE YEARS...
 BUT THAT IS OK BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T HAVE AS 
MANY FOLKS VISITING AND STARING AT HER
AS CAMERON  VILLAGE.

Mom and Dad love visiting Cameron Village every Saturday.
The flowers for each season are spectacular.
Mom says she remembers spending
many fun filled hours shoppingwhen she was very young
EACH MOMENT THERE SHE SEES
BEAUTIFUL 
as she remembers the times spent with 
her mom

  1. How beautiful to see your two girls on the dresser. I loved the shopping center tour. They have done a wonderful job keeping the center up-to-date and interesting. Wouldn't it be nice if all property owners did this instead of letting things fall into disrepair.
