A Happy Memory Girl

I just want to say thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post -- your kind words were much appreciated.

A few of us gathered on Friday night for dinner and drinks in our friend's backyard, where we've gathered so many times before for happier reasons.

We talked a little about what had happened, but we didn't really want to linger there. So, we talked a lot about our many happy memories of Elissa.

She was a happy memory kind of girl.

  Happy hour, you've changed.

There is more mourning to be done. A funeral this week and a party to be planned. She loved parties, so it seems only right to try and throw a big one in her honour.

But, as is always the way in life, with the bad stuff comes the good (and vice versa).

Tomorrow we're finally making our offer on 'our farm'. It's great that we've made it to this point and while it all feels surreal still, I am looking forward to packing up our belongings, loading up a truck and driving our lives out of the bright lights of Brisbane. 


But right now, I can't help thinking of the big housewarming party we will no doubt hold there and of a girl who would have been first on the dance floor, but won't be able to make it.


  1. Hold onto all the wonderful memories of your dear friend and best of luck with your farm dreams. mel x

  2. I have a feeling your lovely friend will be there watching you all celebrating the move. Fingers crossed for you today!!

  3. I am so sorry to hear about the tragic death of your good friend, thinking about those wonderful times together is what she would have wanted more than anything. It sounds like you've got lots of wonderful things on the horizon, best of luck with the farm it sounds fantastic, one day I would love to do that too. Thanks so much for stopping by:)

  4. good luck with all the big things you have to get thru at this moment.

  5. There is just no sense to be made of some things Edwina. So sorry for everybody involved. But wishing you all the best with your plans.

  6. Ah, I never know what to say, except I'm sorry to hear such sad news. Thinking of you and Elissa's family and friends. xx
