Today marks 4 months since my mother left us. My life hasn’t been the same since but I channel her strength and live each day for my Joanie. She was my #1 supporter (and critic) and always made me feel like I could be and do anything I set my mind to. I relaunched Handbag Report in honor of Joanie because the last thing she would want is for me to sit around depressed. So, today, I dedicate my blog to my beautiful mother. I will share memories and quotes from time to time that remind me of the special relationship we had and how much I cherish her.
