What a roller coaster ride this week has been!!! It started out really fun and as of yesterday we were overshadowed with some very sad news.....my 52 yr old stepbrother passed away of pneumonia....he was admitted into a German hospital a few days ago and two days ago he was placed into a deep coma....which he never made it out off!!! SHOCKER!!! The doctors are not a 100% sure if pneumonia was the only reason he suffered from.....I'm not sure if his immediate family is calling for an autopsy?!?
Unfortunately we were not very close, but he always treated me very kindly when I came home to visit!!! My heart is very saddened by his unexpected loss!!!
Please keep his family in your prayers as they see thru this difficult time!!! Thank you!!!
On a happier note....I *socialized* this Wednesday as my friend Penny and I met up with some super sweet and fun stampin' friends from the Atlanta area!!!
After talking about meeting f-o-r-e-v-e-r...we finally decided to do so!!! We - Julie Warner, Robin Kirkpatrick, Sue Prather (who doesn't have a blog or SCS gallery yet for me to link you to, but who has blown us away with her fabulous cards!!!), Penny Allen, my fellow OCC girl Jenny Gropp - met at Olive Garden. After having a yummy luncheon with lots of laughter we decided to hop over to my favorite store *Archiver's* - wahoooo!!!
Here is a photo of me and Sue.
We did some serious shopping at Archiver's we caught...... Julie action - LOL - got ya GF!!!
I had such a wonderful time. There is nothing better to meet some friends that you have so much in common with and instantly feel connected to!!! I'm already looking forward to our next meeting which hopefully we'll be in February - wahooooo!!!
Thank you girls for making this a fun day for Penny and me!!!
Before I go I would like to remind you that I'm still have some SU Stamps that need a good new home!!! Click right HERE to see what is still available!!! I will ship internationally - no problemo!!!!
