Today we celebrate the life of Tina Downey. If you would like to join in and share a tribute of your own, you can sign up HERE. She was a bright light in the blogging world, and she will be greatly missed. Her cheerful outlook on life inspired me, and I'll always remember that about her.
I didn't think it would work out too well to plant a sunflower in Iowa at this time of year, and I wanted to put some time and thought into my tribute. In the end, I decided to buy some art materials and turn it into an art project that I could share with my kids.
The sunflower we made is now prominently displayed on our refrigerator.
Tina's family has also set up the Downey Education Fund. Any donations made will go toward a college fund for Tina's two boys.
