"Memories of Momma" — A 71 Day Photo Tribute (Day 65)



Mom didn't like getting her hair messed up by the rain or wind. So imagine my surprise when she very willingly and excitedly joined me outside in a downpour during a Douglas Island 4th of July parade.

We painted our nails in patriotic colors and donned our blue rain jackets before grabbing our lawn chairs to go sit outside. We also *might* have added sangria spritzers into our coffee cups.

Rain or shine, Momma was always in style!

*It's Day 65 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.
