Hey all! This is my first venture into the A-Z Challenge, so you’ll have to forgive me as I stumble along this month. 🙂 Arlee Bird started this challenge at Tossing it Out, and it’s been around since about 2007.
I entered this challenge for one reason: Tina Downey. She was a dear blogger friend who we lost last August, far too young. She was great at lifting my spirits whenever I was having a rough time and I still miss her dearly. Her family has memorialized her blog, Life is Good and I visit it when I can.
I originally planned to do a theme on the history of the Bronx since that’s where I was raised, but life has its way of throwing curves. I’m keeping it theme-less for now, although I’ll throw in some tidbits about the Bronx since I’d already started doing research.
It’ll be the challenge, but if I can get through it unscathed, I will be one happy camper! 🙂
Oh, and A also stands for Arthur Avenue, which happens to be in Da Bronx, not far from where my BFF and Comadre, Julie used to live. It’s part of Bronx’s Little Italy.
That’s it for today! See you tomorrow!
