It's been one year today since this bright light went out. We miss you mom❤️️

67/100 of #100memoriesofmom My mom loved to go apple picking in the fall. When we were little we went to my friend Kim Kazimour's Family farm to pick. Later when she lived with us we took her to our local orchard where they have golf carts and we could drive her around the orchard to pick our favorite apples. She thought that was a hoot! #memories #mom #apple #watercolor #illustration #grief
