You are my Sunshine

I know that this would seem like a typical choice for a first time letterer and to be honest, I'm okay with that. "You are my Sunshine" is a song that my Mom would sing to all her grandchildren. She sang a lot of other songs but that song, it was a hit. A little over 7 years ago, she passed away after a very long and hard battle with pancreatic cancer. Sadly, my daughter who is now 21 months will never know her Grammie. I honor my Mom by not only talking about her all the time to Ever, but I sing that same song to her almost every single day. 

Ever will never get to really know my Mom but by me singing her all the songs I used to hear, I feel like in some way she will understand just how important she was to me. 

Below are some pieces of inpiration for me in terms of color and type that I find very fitting to the song and to my Mom's personality.
