Taking Nana to La Plata Canyon for the Last Time





Although Pick's had taken its toll on my mom at this point, she asked to go to the mountains. We drove her up and stopped at her favorite spot, the waterfall. She wasn't surefooted any longer, but she ambled over the boulders to sit next to the water. She isn't able to get around now and no longer seems to know who I am, but I am grateful I had this moment with her. What an incredible journey my life with her has been.

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye. The leaf cuts are from Cricut's Straight for the Nest cartridge. The square frame is from Plantin Schoolbook, and the font for the title is Calligraphy Collection.
