My mom was *gorgeous* when she was younger. I look like my dad's side of the family, though.
I have her wedding photo because she didn't want to keep it. I actually had a friend tell me I look just like her in that photo, and wanted to kiss her for saying it! It's not true at all, but it was nice to hear anyway. Hee. My mom was 5', 95 lbs, and a C cup. Long, dark, thick, shiny and healthy hair, and big brown eyes, with a great smile.
About 50 lbs heavier, 30 years later, and she still gets hit on a LOT. I've been slowly teaching her to dress flatteringly for herself, and have more flattering hair. She looks darned good for 58!
