"Memories of Momma" — A 71 Day Photo Tribute (Day 13)



I still remember the softness of her blue housecoat. She wore it for years when I was growing up.

This is a picture of Mom right after she and Daddy brought me home from the hospital. It snowed in Alabama on the day I was born (March 10), so it's no surprise she wanted to be warm and cozy at home in this frock.

She looks absolutely flawless. I can't believe she had just given birth. I want so desperately to just be able to text her and say, "Hey Momma, remind me how much I weighed when I was born?" Well, regardless of how big of a baby I was, she still looks like she just walked off the set of a photoshoot.

*It's Day 13 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.
