"Memories of Momma" — A 71-Day Photo Tribute (Day 20)



Check out these two hipsters! This must've been in the mid-1970s, but by the looks of Dad's beard, he's totally on trend with 2016.

This is actually the first time I've ever seen my Dad wear a wedding ring. Even though they were married for 25+ years, Daddy never wore his wedding ring because he was a barber and it got in the way of the scissors during a haircut. I'm surprised the ring was white gold, but that makes sense because then it would match my Mom's ring.

I love the sunshiny candidness of this photo. Momma looks completely smitten and happy. May they both be enjoying the brightness of heaven these days.

*It's Day 20 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.
