Another Break

Apologies for the radio silence.  Unfortunately, I've been dealing with a family emergency.  I am anxious to blog again, to regain some semblance of normalcy (and share the fun DIY tutorials I have banked!), but I think it might still be a week or two before I can - I will probably post something on Instagram first.  Being almost completely offline for weeks feels so weird, I might need to ease back into it.  But I noticed today that some of you have reached out via email, Instagram and through blog comments to check in with me, and your thoughtfulness means a lot to me.

Thanks for sticking with me.  I miss you!

    1. I'd love to be on an awesome vacation. But man, when this is over I'm going to LIVE with a passion I've never felt before. I'm gaining so much perspective. Trivial matters are never going to bum me out again.

    2. Ugh. Your new post has shed a little light on what you and your family have been going through the last month and a half. My family went through (what I'm guessing was) a similar situation earlier in the year and it is truly a crushing way to receive a wake-up call. I am so sorry for the emotional rollercoaster you and those close to you have been experiencing. I'm sure it has only been that much harder because of how much you seem to care about people. Growing up and learning about life (and death) is stupid. Even though I don't know you, I will be thinking about you during this difficult time and hoping that the love of your family and friends makes your transition to "the new normal" as smooth and painless as possible...which often isn't painless enough.

    3. Hi Kirsten, I'm so sorry to hear that your family has gone through something similar this year. You're so right about how death it stupid. I found myself saying "this sucks, this really sucks," an awful lot the last six weeks. It's also totally terrifying. For some ridiculous reason, I thought that because we already lost a family member this year, we sort of paid our dues and the rest of the year (at least) could be filled with joy. Now I have this crippling fear that more and more terrible things will keep happening. That we'll be one of those families people whisper about because they're been struck with so much tragedy. Not that there is a "fair share" of grief.

      At least we know we're not alone. Everyone deals with this at some point. Which really hurts because I don't wish this on anyone. But it is good to know that others understand and empathize.

      I'm truly sorry to hear that your family has experienced this heartbreak. My condolences. My thoughts are with you too. I hope you've been able to find comfort.
