Top 10 of 2022: Dedicated to my mom, Lorraine Martin

January 31, 2023

This blog post has been sitting in draft since Jan 2, 2023, but on Jan 6, my mom lost her battle to cancer and died, so things have been on hold in my world for awhile.

So, words are failing me for now, but the following series of photos are extra special in the sense that I was able to share these experiences with my mom while she was still with us in the physical world.

We will share more in the days ahead I’m sure, just in a different way.

And this year, my highlight reel is presented in a slideshow format – scroll on down and click or swipe right to view some beautiful mini-moments from 2022.

    So sorry your lost your Mom. It’s a hard one to lose, your best friend, your confident, your reason for living. May the memories sustain you for now and forever. Loving tribute, your beautiful photographs. You will think of her often and become the best parts of her. I still miss mine (2018). Hugs
