So Sweet/#JusJoJan #SoCS


I'll be brief  

Attach whatever meaning you think applies to me after you read my post.  In the meantime, here is my contribution to Linda Hill's dual prompt for #JusJoJan and #SoCS.  Please visit the link to meet some pretty awesome bloggers and join the fun! Today's prompt, in short, is to use the words 'in the' anyway you like in your post.

So, without further ado, I have to say that...

In the grand scheme of things, my life has been pretty sweet. Instead of going all wordy on you, let me share in the way that comes most easily and means the most.  Enjoy a bit of my favorite music while you browse.
