In honor of my mother and mothers everywhere who have albums (or drawers) full of pictures like this. Pictures of "The Table". Pictures that represent all the time and effort they put into various functions. Pictures that show that, yes, at one time, there was order before the chaos began. Pictures that transcend generations: from tablecloths made of antique lace at Thanksgiving to avocado green polyester at that 70's fondue party. Here's to you, Mom!
