I know I've been MIA...just one of those times in the grief process. So many people say that "time heals" ~ no it doesn't! I think that time allows for a few more days of smiles and sunshine...perhaps a night that you fall asleep without the tears and wake up with a more positive outlook. A time of happy memories and laughter or doing something to honor the person you lost. A day that you want to slap someone when they say, "I figured you're over it by now." :( A day when your gratitude list is long and positive and you feel your prayers are heard.
It is a horrible group to be in and you don't wish it on anyone! Unfortunately, sometimes the other members of the group are the only ones that truly understand. They recognize that your moods can change in an instant and you really, really don't want to be a Debbie Downer.

I just found a group of emails that were in the "Promotions" folder of my gmail account. Many were responses to posts here and I'm so embarrassed that I didn't know and haven't responded to you! I do apologize ~ I guess I will have to check that folder and SPAM more often...there were a few in the SPAM folder too.

In case you're not aware, I am so over this heat! Of course you do remember when I complained about the icy cold temps last winter don't you? :) My favorite time of year is Fall and then Spring. We get a little breather here and hopefully, turn off the a/c for a few days as well as enjoy being outside! One of my favorite things to do is to eat outside...or have coffee or a drink in the evenings and just relax. We have such a short window of time to do this so it's important to take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself!

Do you have any recommendations for dry skin? I feel like I've tried most everything. I've always had dry skin, however, the past couple of months it has been horrid! I've used moisturizer, coconut oil, creamy Vaseline, argan oil, Vitamin C & E and really thinking of trying WD-40. :) The oils are causing break outs so I'm at a loss as to what to try next. Would love for you to share suggestions!

The new HomeGoods and Michael's had their grand openings yesterday. I didn't go ~ I don't enjoy crowds. The parking lots were full. I have been to the new Kirkland's ~ very nice! I had a gift card so I used it to buy a new lamp. Will try to get it photographed and share soon! [ For those that are not aware, these new stores are within walking distance for me. :) ]
