It's OK

I had to completely edit my It's OK post because so much has happened since the day I originally wrote it.  On Tuesday night, my Grandfather passed away.  It's been such an emotional time for my family.  I'm headed up to Leesburg to see my Grandmother (and my Mom) for the first time since his passing.  I just know how devastated my Grandma is and I'm trying my best to prepare myself for how emotional things are going to be but I don't know if I'll ever be ready.  Please keep my family in your prayers.

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK......

~to be totally consumed by my home redecoration project
~to love my new desk!!!
~to be scouring the internet trying to find vintage copies of my favorite books for the desk
~to have a file of pictures that need to turn into canvases in the near future
~to want to move into Crate & Barrel
~that I turned down buying the Tory Burch sandals I wanted because I could use that money on the house (who am I????  I'm blaming this girl for this one)
~to be making my own coffee this pay period just to save money for the house even though it's so not satisfying  like Starbucks is (oh and my quest to the gold card is suffering because of it too)
~to be planning out the look of my EC Life Planner that I desperately need (Hubs....I absolutely need this!!!)
That was my original post.  It's funny to read what was on my mind a few days ago compared to what consumes my thoughts now

~to be thankful I've lived 29 years with all of my grandparents
~to be thankful for the amazing family that God has provided me
~to be thankful for the Hubs.  He never ceases to amaze me in these situations
~to be thankful that my Grandfather is no longer in pain and free from illness
~to be thankful that all my Angels from work get to hang out with both of my Grandfathers up in Heaven
~to be thankful for all the amazing friends I have in my life.  The amount of love and support that I've felt in the past 2 days has been tremendous.  I truly am a lucky girl!!!

My absolute favorite picture of my Grandpa (with Emmy in July of 2010)



  1. Love, I'm so sorry. I'll be thinking of you and praying for your family this week.

    I'm glad your home projects are going well and that I got blamed for the lack of Tory sandals.

    I love you.

  2. Thinking of you friend through this hard time and sending prayers your way!

  3. I am so sorry for your loss! I am thinking of you!

  4. Oh girl, I just made it to the Gold level and I have been anticipating my card! I hope you get there soon!! It's the little things, right? :)

    So sorry for your loss! Sending prayers!

  5. I'm so sorry sweetie. I'm 32 and just this year lost my grandparents. My grandpa died from cancer and then a year and 2 days later my grandma passed from COPD. It hurts so bad to lose them no matter how long you have had them. Praying for comfort and peace in your heart.
