Tragedy struck us recently, and I feel like I’ve fallen off the face of the blogging earth. I’ve also had no time to play in the kitchen and really haven’t felt like it. So I feel like I owe you an explanation.
Last Saturday, my best friend lost her husband. It was sudden, it is still unexplained and we are burying him today. He left behind three beautiful children in which I love like my own. He just turned 40.
Obviously I’ve had questions and anger and confusion and more sorrow than I knew possible.
And then, so many interesting things have happened lately that I’ve wanted to share with my blog readers.
I even had a few posts scheduled but I pulled them. They just didn’t feel right. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe this weekend. But definitely soon.
I feel like if I don’t come up for air soon, I’m going to suffocate and while today is going to be so, so hard – I also know it will be a bit of closure. Or at least a final chance to say “Goodbye for now, Joe.”
Please keep my best friend Cyndi, her three children and their entire family, friends and support system in your prayers today and in the coming weeks.
Thank you so much.
If you’d like to read about Joe, his obituary is here and it’s AMAZING.
Now, off to go eat some pancakes drowning in butter and maple syrup because comfort it all I want and the pancakes are begging me to eat them.
I love you all, and I miss you like crazy.
