Magnolias for my Momma

My mom and her whole side of the family are from the South, so needless to say magnolia trees have a certain nostalgia for us. For me they remind me of spending time in Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana with all my extended family. Amazing memories from my childhood and crazy road trips through the back-country of Mississippi. Memories of visiting my second cousins in New Orleans before the devastation of Katrina, and having my Grandma and Aunt Kathy all to myself on the white sands of Seaside, FL. Most of all, magnolias remind me of my incredibly giving, selfless, beautiful Momma. For all you yanks out there that’s what we call our mothers in the South:) So when I heard that the Magnolia trees were blooming at the Arboretum I knew I had to go take some pictures. This post is dedicated to all the beautiful Southern women in my family, I know we don’t get to see each other that often, but know that you are always in my heart and I miss you all very much. Enjoy…….
