Life Lately


I’ve had posts to write and others to schedule recently but I’ve found myself stuck.

A terrible thing happened. 

It’s not my story to tell, yet it is something which has deeply impacted my life and that of my family. I haven’t known how to move forward here in this space. To simply continue posting without touching on what has happened feels like I’m glossing over, pretending and denying the importance of it all. I’ve tried. It feels like I’m saying “everything is fine!” to the world, when it’s not.

After much debate, I’ve decided to briefly touch on what has been going on.

Last month I posted, sharing a line and photo about my mum getting married. It was a beautiful day. Devastatingly, her husband passed away a day short of their one month anniversary. Three weeks ago yesterday.


I didn’t want to continue on here without taking the time to acknowledge, remember and respect Rex and the big part he played in our lives.

Life lately has been tough.

Linking up with Jess for #ibot

  7. Oh god, that’s horrible and I’m so sorry for you and your family – particularly your mother obviously.

    It’s hard sometimes – knowing what to share and what not to share. But sometimes it feels like we’re keeping part of us hidden if we don’t share the bad as well as the good.
