Life Update

When it rains, it pours. Am I right? I’ve been more than a little radio silent over the last few days (most of last week), and while things are finally starting to settle down on the home front – I’m slowly settling back into the flow of every day life vs. plowing full speed ahead. 

After a long three week battle my sister passed away last Monday, and I spent most of last week with my family, working through funeral arrangements, and planning what next steps were in regards to some family matters.

Due to a larger than average age gap (20+ years) along with some other circumstances my sister and I were never close, but I’m officially getting to the age where I realize that life’s more fleeting than I used to care to admit. 

My challenge to you this week is to learn to live in the moment and hold your loved ones closer than usual because tomorrow is never promised today. 

Keeping today short and sweet, but wanted to stop by with a life update and to break radio silence after taking some much needed time off. We will return to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow morning, bright and early.

  • I’m sorry for your loss. Take care.

    Oh Josh… I’m sorry. I’m glad your back and I love your brown hair! Life can deal us crappy blows, but we grow and learn from them, and some are life-altering, but we learn from those times also.

    • Couldn’t agree more! And thank you, BUT it’s actually a very dark grey in these photos, haha. For some reason though it looks brown here.

  • Josh, I am so so sorry for your and your family’s loss. Take good gentle care of yourself. <3

    • Thank you Hannah! Took it slow and steady for the rest of last week after the funeral, and it was much needed.

  • I’m so sorry, Josh. I’ll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts!!

  • Sending healing thoughts and virtual hugs.

  • Hope you’re doing well! xoxoxo
