As usual, there are photos of my outfit above, and I hope you are able to draw creative inspiration from them. But in this post, I’m not going to talk about my outfit. I need to talk about something serious, because life isn’t all sundresses & lipstick.

It isn’t an easy thing to talk about and there isn’t a formula available for those experiencing it. Grief is something that, no matter how expected or unexpected the loss is, has to be figured out as you go. Nobody can tell you how to feel when a loved one is lost, and that’s ok. Grief feels different for every person & every situation, and emotions, good & bad, are human.

Yesterday, I lost my grandmother. While I’m grateful for the years I got to spend with her & all of the beautiful memories I have of her, it feels too soon & I don’t feel ready to say goodbye. I love her more than I could ever articulate & I’m glad her suffering is over, but right now its difficult to look beyond the grief. It’ll grow easier as time goes by, but right now it hurts. She was an inspirational woman, whose  pure & unconditional love for those around her will drive me for the rest of my life. I see bits of her in myself & that makes me incredibly proud.

Rest in peace Grammy, I love you.
