“If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”
Today is my two year blogiversary. I started thinking about it in September, I wanted to do a special post since my 1 year blogiversary was overlooked in my stress of last year.
But November 4th (last Monday) my family got a surprise, my Grandpa Bill passed away. I was blessed to get 25 years with all four grandparents living, so this past week as been a struggle. I spent the week either at work trying to get things done as quickly as possible, or hanging at my grandma’s house with relatives.
My eyes have been opened to the realities of funerals and the responsibilities that come along with them. Things that I never considered or noticed when other family members passed. I suppose its comes with being an adult now.
More than likely I’ll be quiet on the blog for another few days. My parents, brother and I had already planned on taking our “Thanksgiving vacation” this weekend, so I’m not sure when or what I will post next.
I hope you all take care, and thank you for joining me on this journey.
Oh, Katie, I am so, so sorry. I am praying for both you and your family during this time. Be as silent as you want – we will all be here when you get back.
Thanks Amy, it was a debate all last on whether or not to post, so I figured I should say something at least a small update.
So sorry for your loss. Family comes first, always. Your blogging family is always here for support too!
Thanks Em, that is very sweet!
So sorry, Katie 😦 Thinking of you and your family.
Love you lady. Thinking of you.

Sorry to hear about your grandpa 😦 Glad you are able to spend time with your family though, cherish those memories! Love you!
We’re thinking of you and sending love your way ❤
So sorry to hear this, Katie. Take your time and be with your family. xoxo

I’m so sorry for your loss! That’s so hard to say goodbye, I’m glad you got to spend time with him before his passing.
aww katie, i’m wrapping you in hugs right now. the loss of a grandparent is.. well.. one of the hardest things i’ve ever experienced. you’re in my thoughts dear one ❤
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I too was blessed to have all 4 grandparents around for quite a long time and it was very hard when my grandfather passed away. Take time to grieve and be with your family.
