MEMORIES of MOMMA*:
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.
