Losing My Grandfather.

Sharing is caring!


So I am not going to lie to you – this has been a hard year

In Nov 2013 I lost my grandfather ( My mom’s dad)  – He was the one who taught me the power of saving and always supported me in everything I tried to do — and from who I inherited my blue eyes

It is because of this support that I dedicated my first book to him

I try and keep this site upbeat so I do not mention the lows in my life — and this was a very big low….. But there is something you can do to help

I really want to help my mom through this hard time ( especially since the 1st anniversary of his passing is next month)

I would love to surprise her with a trip to New York City next month ( one of her favorite cities) – it would help her spirits and her keep her mind occupied during these hard times

It just so happens I got the news today I am a semi-finalist in Truvia Baking Star!

If I win this round I will be going to the bake off in New York City Next Month ( PLUS I can bring a guest —- I want to bring my mom of course!!!!)

This is where I need your help

Thank You — HUGS!
