Tina brought out the fun in blogging, while being one of the major organisers and administrators of the incredible A-Z Challenge held in April each year.
|A Swedish Summer Fest|
She emailed, prior to my 2nd challenge in 2012, asking if I’d be one of her “Minions” .. ie a helper for that year’s series … from then on we developed a great friendship … with lots of rapport, ribald stories and informative updates on life in general …
|London, England to Stockholm, Sweden|
Tina’s Swedish roots – she was so proud to be Swedish and have those origins … as we found out in many of her posts and particularly in her A-Z 2013 series on a Swedish immigrant during her first year as an American. I am linking over to her Z for Zomboni … there are some lovely happy pictures of a young Tina.
|Tina's instruction to the Klass:|
For the 2012 Challenge – she taught Klass: Swedish How to … and as always Tina the teacher, the maths whizz, crept out … thankfully her X post gave us a summary of the A-Z words she had tried to coax us into learning some Swedish!!
|Tjorn - one of the many Swedish islands:|
No wonder she had lovely memories
I know all of our thoughts will turn to her parents, and in particular to her husband and her two sons whom she dearly, dearly loved … Tinadescribed her family under her tab Nickname-Translator … so you can check out all her loved ones …
|Five of the sunflowers I bought to brighten|
up my sitting room - remembering Tina
Tina lived life and will be sorely missed by us all … she was a driving force, with an inspirational twist that had lots of zest to it …
