Brighter Days

The last couple of weeks have been so crazy. I am just peeking in quick to say “hello” to you.

I have added some spring touches around my house to share, like this door color and the “hello”.  I made the hello sticker with my Cricut cutter.

Red outdoor pillows are on the porch rocking chairs.

But it is snowing again tonight.

I am slow at getting blog posts out. My family had an emergency last week and I have been out of sorts since.
My Grandmother passed away. She was almost 90 years old but that doesn’t make it any easier to say goodbye. 
My inbox is so full, I apologize if I haven’t responded to you.

I will miss my little Grandma.

Brighter days will come.

Holly, I didn't know it was the passing of your grandmother when you said you had a family emergency. I am so sorry for your loss.


Oh Holly, I'm so sorry about your Grandma's passing. Of course you will miss her forever. What a lovely casket and floral spray though. Brighter days are ahead…spring is surely almost here!

My condolences to you and your loved ones on the loss of your Grandmother. The little hello on the door is such a sweet touch and I think I need to find one for when I paint the front door (if and when warmer weather ever arrives.)

Awh, I'm so sorry Holly. I know how this hurts. I lost my grandma almost a year ago. She made it to 101 and was in good health. No matter how old our grandparents are, it doesn't make it any easier when we lose them. I cling to the good memories of all of the things she taught me how to do. I will always be grateful to her for her teaching me a strong work ethic and how to work with my hands to make things for my home. Treat yourself gently with hugs and slower days.

I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother passing away! Death in the family is never easy no matter the circumstances or age. It looks like she'll be resting in a beautiful spot. Your porch looks good, even with the snow! Love your new red pillows.


Oh Holly! I'm so sorry! No, age doesn't matter- we are never ready to say goodbye. I miss my grandmas very much still. Praying for comfort.

So sorry about your Grandma–I understand your sense of loss since we lost our Grandpa recently–he was 89–and even though it was his time we still miss him. Have a great spring–I hope that snow melts quickly!

Aw this makes me sad Holly. I felt that same ache when my Grandma died and it didn't matter that she was 90. In fact, it was harder in a way because it seemed like she had always been there. A constant presence in my life. But time heals and you'll soon realize that you carry your Grandma inside you now. Take your time, your readers are always here for you. 🙂
