My mom would have been 71 today. She passed away late this August.
Still doesn't even seem real.
This picture was taken when my middle child was still in diapers. It's one of my favorite pictures of her. A fun fourth of July at her place (I think my kiddo has a mouth full of watermelon here). When I'm snapping pictures of my kids I still think "Mom would like this." Saying goodbye came so fast, and saying goodbye goes so slow.
