6 YEARS AGO TODAY...


6 years ago today--on the day before my birthday--my dad died unexpectedly.

A lot of living happens in 6 years.

Residences change, careers change, relationships change, looks change and overall, the world keeps turning, minus a soul that may not have meant much to everyone, but he meant a lot to a few. 

He was ridiculously smart, sarcastic, funny, introspective, detached, stubborn, complicated & driven.

I too, am all of those things. 

It's weird to be reminded of this anniversary every year, right before my birthday. Still, I take it as an opportunity to be reminded of his life and be grateful for the time we had together. 

I love you and I miss you, dad. 
Always have, always will

Those we love leave an indelible mark in our hearts and souls. I don't think it ever gets easier as the years go but as we grow we are indeed reminded of what sort of legacy we want to leave behind.
How marvelous to celebrate the anniversary of your Dad and your own birthday. Gratitude for all the times always make us realize how fortunate we are.

I lost my uncle 6 years ago to pancreatic cancer. It never gets easier for me, but it is comforting to know he's watching over!
