Thanks Charlotte-
I'm so glad that the memory box meant so much to you as does the perfect little painting of JoJo. You captured her cuteness and spirit beautifully. The "bedroom slippers" are a good distraction but the loss of JoJo is still felt daily. Friends like you help so much. OOPS the slippers are chewing the shoes!!!!

XOXO Nancy


Lovely post Charlotte! Beautiful painting.

I've spent the past few minutes catching up here. I love the story of the purse and the vacation photos!

The book sounds like something I would enjoy reading!

Thanks so much! Pat


Sweet, sweet, sweet! Little birds are flying around my head!!!


What a sweet painting of JoJo. and the little slippers...adorable!

I spent some time catching up with your posts...always fun to read. Thank you!

puppies!!!! must-snuggle-NOW!!!


This just helped me smile and raised my spirits. Today we are losing my doggie *niece* Haley and I am filled with sadness. I have hugged my poor Kipper and our kitties so much today that they are now running from me! (Okay, they actually love it but...)

I so needed a post like this..thank you.
