It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Thank you to the summer's hosts:
Jun ~ Bellezza at Dolce Bellezza

September's host is Yolanda at Notorious Spinks Talks

and me in October ... I'm so excited!
