Hello again. Thank you so much for all of your kind and thoughtful emails and comments (both here and on Instagram) about the passing of a family member. To those who expressed concern for my family, I wanted you to know that they’re doing well. Sad, of course, but figuring out how to move forward. I wasn’t sure whether it would be appropriate/necessary to write about my family’s loss in more detail on the blog. I felt uncomfortable writing a deeply personal story that really isn’t all mine to tell. But it seemed heartless to jump from “a relative died” to “do you think subway tile is too predictable a choice for the bathroom reno?”
I asked some of my family members what they thought and they said to keep on truckin’; to just return to my regular posts because what I had written was sufficient. So that’s what I will do.
Thank you so much for your support, it really means a lot to me.
