remember me? I hope at least a few of you do..... and that you're still following along, tap tap tapping your foot awaiting some news, some photos, a story.... or just a "hey there"!
Well.... Hey there!! I'm back and I'm ready to share some photos, creations and maybe even a story or two. Isn't it hard to believe that it's almost two years since our world ran into this big... no, make that huge, bump in our road of life? The bump started a bit sooner with us when in January of '20 we lost a great friend. The friend that made the Sharon/BigPops team happen. A blind date it was, and well...... the rest is history, 23 years of history, good history. We watched him fail with Parkinsons for several years and then in December of '19 he was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. He was gone a few weeks later. And so it began. The months of one loss after another of people I loved. Friends. Family.
Junior, Uncle Joe, Curt, Aunt Judy, Harriet, Bill aka Bos and Helen.
These are the ones who held a special place in my heart, the ones I have stories to tell of, memories to share, and how they made my life better.
I will share a story of each in future posts as I think I have finally found my "voice" to put words to "paper"...... I so hope I have, and I hope you'll enjoy the little stories of each I have to tell and how I loved each of them.
For now, I just want to say, "hey there", "how ya doin'", "so happy to see you again"..... and of course, a Happy, happy Autumn to everyone! I love all of our wonderful seasons here in the mitten but I really do love Fall most of all! It's the leaves coming alive with color, pumpkins, bittersweet, mums, gourds and the scent.... you know that scent of Fall.... that's how I know when it's really arrived, and I smile.
A few photos to share.....
and of course one of The Girls.....
