About

I can often be found with a pile of yarn listening to music, craft podcasts, or an audio book. I am learning to dye and spin my own yarn. I enjoy crafting handmade items to give as gifts to family and friends. I also enjoy donating handmade items to Scarves for Troops/Operation Gratitude in memory of my Sister and Grandfather.

I love old fashioned and retro everything.

I haven’t traveled a lot most of the states that I have visited were hit all in one trip.

“The darker the night, the brighter the stars, the deeper the grief, the closer is God!”

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

I’ve loved and lost more times than I can count and I blog about it often, greif is exhausting especially when it is introduced to a soul repeatedly. I have so many pieces of myself in heaven there isn’t a whole lot of me left here on earth. There are times when I feel so empty, lost, and alone. I’m slowly learning to redefine my identity and my way of life. Faith & Family has kept me grounded when my life has repeatedly fallen apart. “LIFE AIN’T ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL BUT IT’S A BEAUTIFUL RIDE”

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV

  1. Can really identify with many aspects of your About page.
    I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog.
    And though I have not read about your journey through grief, especially around your sister, please know that my heart feels for you.
    Blessings on all Sisters.

  2. I too got into crocheting and knitting after my dad died very suddenly. It was the only thing I could do to engage my mind and eventually fall asleep at night. But I think those of us who are able to channel our grief into something creative are way better off and much farther on the road to healing than the people who end up drinking or doing drugs because they can’t deal with the pain. It got easier for me after a time, and I hope it will for you too!

    1. Thank you! I agree! I was 20 years old when my Dad died suddenly in an accident and I didn’t have experience in grief or a coping mechanism like knitting at hand. I found it much easier to grieve and work through my emotions with a creative outlet. I still miss both of them like crazy but it’s nice to have something to channel that negative energy into.

  3. Wow!! Your blog on grieving a sibling is everything I’m feeling put into words! I lost my only sister 5 months ago, and I am expierencing everything you wrote. People. It checking etc especially immediate family on my husband’s side. My family is close, very close and we are all amazingly supportive of one another which gets us though but I am sad very sad and I miss her terribly!!

    1. I am so sorry for your loss and sad that my brutally honest post rings so true with another surviving sibling. One thing that I have grown to understand is that people don’t treat us this way on purpose. If they haven’t been in this place in life they just don’t get it. Our grief is so profound that our world stops and it hurts that other people can choose to move on. Hold your loved ones close to you it doesn’t get any easier you do just learn to live again.
