Bittersweet – Tina B's World


From 5 to 4.

Blog Challenge Day 4: Great Things That Come in Fours. Confession: this is a bittersweet post. Last time I did this challenge, I posted about my 4 Pugs. Since then, we lost our eldest, Jordan. We are down to 4 dogs total now, so I am going to gratuitously post some cute pics of them […]

Playing With Nanny’s Shadow: How I Dealt With Grandma’s Alzheimer’s

I was so very blessed to know my Grandmother, aka “Nanny”. She turned 93 about two weeks before she passed away in 2015. There is so much in my high school history book that she actually LIVED THROUGH. I’m amazed at some of the stories she has told me. One thing nagged me though. It
