MEMORIES of MOMMA*:
I love everything about this picture— Momma's youthfulness, her sassiness. She looks like gold dynamite — 💯!
The diamond cluster ring that Momma is wearing on her left pinkie finger is a ring she gave me quite a few years ago. Back then, I wasn't fond of the style of the ring and since I needed the money at the time, I sold the ring — a choice I regret to this day. I wish I could find this ring and buy it back from the new owner, but it must be long gone at this point.
Morale of the story: save the mementos if you can. And if you can't, hold on to your sweet memories for dear life.
*It's Day 32 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.
