From Our Mothers, To Our Mothers

March is Women’s History Month and the women of News4 paid tribute to some of the most important ladies in their lives. In a News4 Special “From Our Mothers, To Our Mothers” we share some of the best memories and life lessons we got from mom. The response so far has been overwhelming. Thanks to all who watched, cried and laughed with all of us. Please enjoy the show below with hilarious and heart warming moments from me, Doreen, Wendy, Veronica, Barbara, Eun and Pat.


All in the picture

It’s rare that my entire family gets together. My sister lives in Texas which makes visits tough. This holiday we had one of those rare chances.. a few very cherished days. My younger sister mandated we get a “Family Photo”. With freezing temps and 5 hyper active grandchildren I was bracing for a high-stress gathering. It was cold and there was some chaos as you can tell– but in the end we were all laughing and so happy that we found the time to capture this time together. Photos by Kai.

Photo Apps making it easy to compare the past

I love how apps like Pic Stitch and Pic Collage make it so easy to do things like this.

Great Fathers

Just a moment to give a shout out to some great men– my husband, dad, father in law and grandfather aka Great Papa! I love you and all that you do to keep our family grounded and strong. No love can compare. Happy Father’s Day.

It’s CHIN’S Day!

Happy birthday CHIN! It’s my momma’s birthday and we celebrated with a homemade southern brunch. My sister Jenny cooked up some good shrimp ‘n’ grits, corn fritters and apple turnovers! We love you mom. You’re as beautiful as ever!

My new nephew!

Welcome baby Knox Renwick! So perfect in every way.

Proud dad Chris.. what do I do with this?!?

Grandparents again!

Little Miracle.

Fish juice in the face!

And I have to admit as gross as it was.. I loved it! It was great getting a laugh out of the whole family as we pulled our cane pole over the bridge to see our winning catch.. only to have it hit me in the face.

We woke up early this past weekend for a little fishing trip at Lake Fairfax. The sun was bright and the fish were biting. Adora caught her first fish too with the help of Papa. These are the times I can’t wait to look back on. It also makes me think back to when I was small. I remember going fishing as a child and being totally grossed out by the worms. I still am.

Lake Fairfax is a cool place. At noon on weekends you can take the flat boat out to tour the lake or take the kids for a ride on the old fashion carousel. There is also a water park next door– but get there before they open the line gets out of control!

To be a mother…

I’m still trying to figure that out on a daily basis. All I know is that I’m more happy in my life than ever before. I’m also more tired.. but with that find I have strength I never knew existed. I think all you moms out there can relate.. and just want to say hats off to you. It’s a tough job.. and many of you are doing it while balancing many other aspects of life. Pat yourself on the back— you deserve it. PS: Do it often, you don’t need a day to tell you how much your needed and how much you do. xo

Happy Mother’s day to my incredible and fierce momma CHIN!

Spent this day with my wonderful husband and baby, Adora Kate too.

Happy birthday Chin!

We celebrate Chin with Korean BBQ and one major cupcake. We love you mom!
