The Circus

So, I haven't been blogging for a long stretch. I don't really know what to say.

There has been amazing and terrible all in the last two weeks.

We had a death in the family, which, evidently, is still too raw to talk about.

And, I met the amazing Erica, and all her wonderful friends at a conference in Richmond. Which evidently, is too awesome to put into words.

I came home in time to take my kids to the circus. Which is just about right. :)



My life is a happy-sad, amazing, wonderfully chaotic circus.

And, you know, I wouldn't have it any other way.

  2. So sorry about the death in your family. I have experienced those hard losses in my own family. This has been a super roller coaster time for me too. We just have to hang in there.

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss, Heather. Don't worry about the blogging. Sometimes it's important to put such things on hold while you reconnect with loved ones. I'm glad you had a great time at the conference and with your family at the circus. It's those times that create the special memories that get us through the tough times.

  9. Heather, I'm so sorry for your loss. Love your attitude :) reminds me of the grandmother in Parenthood (a great movie) who compares life to a roller coaster.

  18. Hi Heather,

    So sorry for your loss. ((hugs)) I know it's been awhile since we've chatted. My life has been, well...not much different than yours. I'll leave it at that. I'd still love to try and get together at some point. Here's to keeping your chin up, and if you need anything, please email me. :)
