Hi Aloud. friends,
This is the beautiful post we published last year for Mother’s Day and what a tribute it was to one of the most influencing person in our lives. This year, I have the immeasurable pleasure of adding myself to the list of mothers out there doing their very best to guide our precious children into adulthood. Take a moment to revisit this post, share it if you love it and have a great day on Sunday. With love, Laure.

“Here is one last “mother painting” for you. It is called “Airport Nurse-In” 60×48, and was painted in response to a woman being kicked off an airplane for breastfeeding, and the ensuing protests…Since then, women have been kicked out of Starbucks, their photographs kicked off Facebook, as just two of many examples, for committing the obscene crime of nourishing their babies! I snuck in a portrait of my sister, Brie, in the far left of the painting, nursing her newborn, Maya… – Erin.
