First, I want to thank everyone for all the sweet comments and support during the past week. It really means a lot to me. Hugs to you all! I have the most fabulous bloggy friends in the world. :)
It was a sad but special trip.
My grandmother's funeral was simple, tasteful, and beautiful.
After the burial, my whole family got together at my aunt's house for food and memories. Despite the circumstances, it was nice to have my entire family together. I got to catch up with all my cousins and admire how cute their kids have gotten in the past year.
Here are some photos of me and a few of my cousins:
The granddaughters also got a chance to take home a few pieces of Grandma's favorite jewelry. It was mostly costume jewelry, but there were a lot of really adorable necklaces, rings, and bracelets to choose from.
I took home four necklaces, which can be seen in this horrible photo. Haha.
I am excited to wear these necklaces because it will be like carrying a piece of my grandmother with me wherever I go.
Now that I am back home, I am hoping that after such a tragedy, life will toss a few happy experiences my way...
It's going to take me a while to get back into the swing of things, so I apologize if you don't hear from me right away. By the end of this week, I should be back into my usual routine.
I hope you are all having a fantastic week. xoxo
