So I had a hard week this week emotionally, and felt it was time to do another 5 Things That Make Me Happy.
|Me, my Daddy, and my sister a few years ago. I found this pic in his room.|
As of this week, it's been 1 month since my dad passed away. I know you're thinking, well how is that something that's happy? You're right, but what made me happy was making the decision to be vulnerable and share with you what that past month has been like. I'm a private person and so many think of grief as a private thing. I wanted to show that you aren't alone. Your words, support, and kindness on this post mean the world to me. I'm finding peace with the fact that he is no longer in pain and is in Heaven. And this pic cracks me up because he was never dressed up (this was at Christmas). He was a Hawaiian shirt kinda guy--he lived in FL for many years and loved the water. On his birthday next month, there will be a post on him.
Charlie turned 5! Would you LOOK AT THIS FACE? Hold on, I need to go hug him after seeing this pic. People who don't like dogs or animals fall in love with him. Even other dogs--he gets them to play. I've had so many dog owners tear up saying they haven't seen their dog play like that in years, but Charlie brings out the pup in them, or that their dog doesn't like other dogs but loves Charlie. He's my boy!
This combo: It's spring, so I was feeling pink nude lips (Royal Ball by Cinderella for Mac) and one of my all-time faves Bikini so Teenie by Essie. This bottle is the old packaging--I hope they still make this!
DIY Crayon Ombre Candle--I've made so many of these lately, but the pink ones are my fave. See the tutorial here.
