Five on Friday: {Just One for Today}

Hey Gals - I'm keeping things brief today because it's been a little bit of a rough week for me. My grandfather passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday and I just don't have it in me to put together my normal Friday post. He was 95 years old and lived a great life, but it just doesn't feel like it was his time yet and it really hasn't sunk in for me yet.  I had just seen him on Saturday for Halloween. He came over with my parents to see Little M in costume, and then everyone stayed for dinner, and I'm just so grateful to have those moments to hold onto now. Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers since it's going to be a tough weekend as we lay him to rest. I think the only thing harder than dealing with your own grief, is seeing your loved ones have to go through it - especially your parents. I know we usually try to keep things pretty light and fun around here, so I'll end things on a happier note with sharing one of my favorite recent pictures of Pop Pop. This was from his 95th birthday this summer, and I've never seen him so happy as he was to be surrounded by all of his family and closest friends.

  4. I'm so sorry! I just went through the same thing with my grandfather in October and it was not the easiest thing to go through, especially when you have to watch your parents in pain too. All I can say is to try to remember all of the wonderful memories you have with him and spend as much time with your family! Thoughts and prayers and hugs to you and your family!
