Four Years

Maxina Danner
Born: 25 March 1987
Murdered: 27 September 2004

You are loved and missed, Snookie. You are forever in our hearts.
You are remembered.

Arabis and I are meeting Lee at the cemetery to visit Maxie and spend the afternoon. The day is lovely and warm, bittersweet and beautiful.

In Lieu of a Real Post - MEME!

Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair... just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with your picture.

ME: "What do you want to be for Halloween this year?"

HER: "Six."

Surrealism, thy name is Toddler.

Quote of the Day

when they ask you
why is your mama so funny
she is a poet
she don't have no sense
