Once there was a Girl. With a blog. You know the kind. The kind with the pretty pictures and the pretty words. The kind that you put on your RSS feed so you don’t miss out on the next post. The kind that lets you in to her world and sucks you in so far you feel like you know her. Yes, you know her. You know her because she’s in every one of us. She’s your mother and your sister. She’s your silver and your gold.
She’s the loyal wife, the doting mama, and on her lucky days, she’s an artist. Capturing details, memories and moments to be treasured.
She’s a fellow photographer.
Well today, this girl is none of these things. Today she is a widow. Today she pulls her hair back into that familiar ponytail, fingers wrapped around that ever present cup of coffee, and stares in the direction of where he used to sit. Where he used to sit, all day, every day, fighting a losing battle called cancer. Yes, you know her, even if you don’t really know her.
Her name is Valerie Koop.
Just wanted everyone to know that the auction is up and running for Valerie.
There are some amazing items....wish I lived closer for some of those photography auctions!
My quilt is right here - I really admire Denise and how generous she is with her company.....
