pulling together

What a week. We've been pulling together as a family and trying our best to keep our heads above water. Originally, I didn't intend to say anything, but for me, it's hard to write a lifestyle blog and not be up front about what's happening in my life.

My dear, sweet mom & best friend was rushed to ICU on Monday and has been there ever since - we're very lucky that she's pulling through. However, she still has a rocky road ahead of her and is facing some serious rehabilitation. I've spent my days & nights at the hospital, holding her hand while she's been unconscious, and I prayed countless times. I'm thrilled those prayers were answered. To those of you who have lost a parent, my heart goes out to you. It's undoubtedly one of the most difficult things to face and the spiral of emotions is overwhelming. My mom is young and healthy and this has come as a complete shock to our family.

In the meantime, I'll still be popping in and blogging + keeping my Etsy shop going. Honestly, it's nice to keep as much of my routine as possible. However, I might be a little slow answering emails and comments, so bare with me. I'll be sure to keep you guys posted...
