Like Mother Like Daughter Layout

For my wedding my Aunt Rosie gave me one of the best gifts. Photos of my Mom when she was young. You know for a scrapper how big that was. Especially since she passed on three years ago. I never seen most of these pictures she had. It was a great gift!

Well as I'm skimming through them I see this picture of my Mother (the one on left) I almost fell out of my chair, literally. I knew I looked like my Mom but holy smokes batman! I immediately remembered the picture taken of me. (the one on right) When I put them next to each other the resemblance was uncanny. The tilt of the head, the hair, the is shaped different then the other, the shape of the face...just so much alike!

When I was printing this picture out last night, for fun I superimposed them on one another....Wow!

I now understand why my Aunts & Uncles look at me that way sometimes.

Miss you so much Mama xoxoxo I'm a lucky girl to look just like you!

Just for fun....this is the superimposed photo :) Can you see it?
