Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Avenue- Pure


For this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue, the theme was "Pure".  I immediately thought of a photo representing my Mom and my oldest daughter, Caroline.  This picture was taken 6 or 7 years ago when we were visiting my family for the summer.  At that time, we lived in the Caribbean and only got to see relatives several times a year.  So, in this instance, the word "Pure" is defined as "Pure JOY"- joy in all the connections and feelings that family and love invoke.  Sorry for the poor quality of the image, for whatever reason, I can't seem to photograph or scan grapite drawings well to save my life!
