To Whom It May Concern: Please Excuse This Absence

24 Aug

We’re only a few days in to the new school year and it seems like I’m already slacking.

In the interest of keeping things honest around here, I want to share with you that I lost someone who I loved very much this week. Her death wasn’t unexpected but she was a huge part of my life from the very beginning so it hurts none the less.

Blogging has taken a backseat to my needing to come to terms with her actually being gone.

It’s a process and I’m slowly getting through it.

I’m still making bentos because I enjoy it so much and so does my daughter. I’m just not taking any pictures.

I’m sleeping in a little longer in the morning and not worrying about what scrapbook paper would make the perfect background or adjusting the blinds to get the best morning light through the living room window.

Those things just don’t matter right now.

I hope to be back to posting in the next week or so. Thank you for understanding.
