Life Lately + Happy New Year!

Hi Friends! It feels like last year since I talked you last! (Your girl has got jokes let me tell ya.) But seriously, it’s been wayyyy too long! I’ve missed you. I hope you’ve all kicked off 2020 surrounded by those you love most with your sights set on new goals and dreams!

We’ve had a very rocky start to the new decade, which is why I’ve taken a bit of a break from my blog. Obviously, it’s never my plan to take a week away without warning, but last week, we lost Trev’s grandma.

We got the call early Thursday morning that she had passed peacefully in her sleep. Everything happened in such a whirlwind that as I’m sitting here, I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that she’s gone.

Three weeks ago, we were in Blissfield for Trevor’s family Christmas. Grandma K had dementia, but other than that, she was still her feisty, healthy, 93 year old self. While we were all prepping for the big, family Christmas, she was on the phone with Trevor’s dad, and she fell.

From there, it was a quick decline in her health that she never really recovered from. It all happened so fast, but we firmly believe that she decided her time here with us was done. She was ready to go be with her husband, daughter and other loved ones we’ve lost over the years.

We are so thankful that we were able to spend some time with her the weekend before she passed, even if it was just to smile with her, hold her hand and tell her how much we loved her. But man, is it hard to lose someone you love so much. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, I promise you we’ve felt them through this incredibly difficult time for us. We miss her so much already. But we are at peace knowing she’s up there with her loved ones, smiling down on us.

We spent the last weekend/beginning of this week with Trevor’s family in his hometown, celebrating her long, wonderful, life.

The past week was emotionally draining, not to mention totally stressful once I got back to work. So, I’ve decided that my “New Year, New Me” starts on Monday 🙂

I’m going to do my best to get back into the swing of blogging this week, starting with my typical first week of a New Year posts… like my New Year’s resolutions, the first #WhatUpWednesday of 2020, and my 2020 Winter Bucket List! (Although, it’s pouring rain in Metro Detroit today so it doesn’t even feel like winter!)

And this month on the blog, you can expect a TON of fun posts, including TWO awesome collabs that I think you will love! So be sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss a single post this year 🙂 I have a feeling 2020 is going to be our best year yet! (At least I hope so, because the last two have been kind of lame.)

Alright my loves, I’m so happy to be back, but it’s time for me to jet. I’ll be back tomorrow!
