Welcome to our little world of chaos, impulsiveness, unexpected twists and turns and plenty of smiles and laughter. Life to me is one big adventure. We are on this planet only once so don’t turn down an opportunity to explore and enjoy new experiences even if they are unplanned.

Our latest chapter began after my husbands mother passed away after a very short illness that left the whole family in immense shock. It was totally unexpected and incredibly sad. I’ve never experienced the loss of a loved one and the aftershock was just horrible. I was a spectator and at times helpless. I would of done anything to make the pain go away. Grief is something that one endures and somehow in the darkness that follows a loss, a light appears. It just takes time.

“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise”

Victor Hugo – Les Miserables

The chaos that followed stemmed from tragedy. Something that could not have been planned but somehow has to be dealt with. It’s not always handled with total clarity but intentions are always good.

What do we do now? Where do we start? What do we want? Help!! This is where the story begins.
