I cannot thank you all enough for the love, support, prayers, and random emails/tweets/etc this week as I mourned the loss of my Grandpa. He's the first person in my family I've ever lost, so I didn't know how to deal with it...but with the help of my husband, family, best friends, and all of YOU... I somehow managed to pull through. So today? I'm choosing to focus on the happy things in my life...Grandpa would want that.
Happy #1. Flowers from all of my best friends. This particular bouquet is from my sweet Erin & Jared. I also got a gorgeous bouquet from two of my best friends, Lyndsie and Angie. Coming home to these sweet little surprises made my week a heck of a lot easier.
Happy #2. After the very emotional funeral, my Grandpa's wife gifted me all of my Grandpa's old vintage camera's. Turns out, he was quite the photographer, too. It's too bad I hadn't known that before he passed, or I would've dragged him among with me on some fun photo dates. But for real, these old camera's are insane, and I'm in love.
Happy #3. Seeing this picture for the first time ever. My Grandpa's wife told me he had this one, and also one of he and my brother, by his bedside. This absolutely made my day. It was so fun seeing old pictures of him in high school, he was such a handsome man!
Happy #4. Onion rings from Red Robin. My entire family got together for lunch after the funeral, and it was so fun just spending time together reliving memories from my Grandpa's life.
Happy #5. My sister-in-love has a birthday this weekend, and I'm so excited to spend time with her this weekend. I truly can't imagine my life without her daily emails, constant support, and our hilarious inside jokes. I hope everyone has a friend like her!
I'm glad my week got better, and I'm thankful for all of love and support from everyone. I hope you all have a good weekend ahead of you. Happy GOOD Friday.
