Happy birthday Mom

People say "it gets easier" when someone dies. It really doesn't. It gets worse. Sure, the initial shock of it all gets easier to deal with; the bouts of ambush grief that pop out of nowhere (and everywhere) that make you burst into tears. That does lessen a bit. But the missing her never goes away. Today my mom would have been celebrating her 62nd birthday. I saved the last birthday card I gave her. She had it taped to her hospital room wall. I hope she sees that we all miss her so much and wish she could share some cake and hugs with us.
Happy birthday Mom.

Home sweet home

not the best photo...

It's official. We own our first house!! We closed on Tuesday and will begin the painting and renovating this weekend. We'll be moved in by Halloween (officially our favorite holiday) so there's a lot to accomplish by then. I'm super excited for my new studio. I'll take before and after pics to show you all. Now I've gotta get dressed and into my studio today to work on some jewelry.
