Goodbye Bumpkin

I have honestly gone back and forth about this post...not because the sentiment is not there, not because my heart is not breaking, but just because, it simply hurts to think about it, and in fact I cannot without shedding a thousand tears.
I am never at a loss for words, but I am now.

Sadly, on Sunday, the sweet, sincere, gracious, fun loving, stylish, passionate, and absolutely fabulous Lisa, of Bumpkin on a Swing passed away. From the first comment and email she sent me, she lit up my day with her words, her way, and the pure and exquisite essence of just being her.
I am thankful I had the pleasure of knowing her.
She was loved and adored by so many and will be missed dearly.
My thoughts and prayers are with her Captain, her family, and her dear friends.

  3. I didn't know of her. But from reading all the comments on her blog, she was a gem. I'm so sorry to hear this. Anytime a blogger leaves, it's felt by everyone.
