"Memories of Momma" — A 71 Day Photo Tribute (Day 3)



My Mom looked like an absolute movie star! I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Mom made her outfit in this picture. She was an incredible seamstress and learned how to sew when she was a kid. They didn't have a lot of money, so she was incredibly resourceful, even making her dolls' clothes by hand when she herself was a little girl.

Nowadays, my closet is full of kuspuks that she has made for me over the years. I will cherish them — and these memories — always.

*It's Day 3 of my 71 day photo series in honor of my dear sweet Momma who passed away on 03.21.2016 after a harrowing 71 day health battle. Those 71 days do not define her. Oh no. What defines her — and me — are the incredible 66 years that she lived her life. I hope you enjoy these snapshots of the beautiful moments and memories of her life.
