Word a week Photo Challenge: Old

This is my favorite photo. It is of my Mimi… also known as Nana.

It started with a simple question “we going out?”… and before you knew it we had the memory of a lifetime. Seriously – I will never EVER forget it. My mom simply said “Mama, I’m going to have a cosmo and I think you would like it….”And the rest is history.

Most importantly – it inspired me to search for adventure and be more present in my life. She was 97 years old when I took this photo. Up to and including the day she died, she lived life on her own terms. I loved my Mimi. And despite time and distance, she was and will always be an inspiration to me.

I love this photo for how it jump-started me, and gave me a mission to live life bigger and to live it surrounded by people I love.

You are never too old for an adventure, or for a new cocktail. Here’s to you Mildred and to a life well lived.
