Heartbreak Monday

I started the day with a trip to the vet to find that my beloved dog Sassie has bone cancer. I really wasn't expecting such devastating news and only wish I had just one more day with her. But, she was in pain and we had to let her go. I will miss her energetic and adoring presence in my life.

This afternoon, my Aunt Blondie lost her 2 year battle with cancer. Growing up she treated me like a daughter, inspired creativity and served as the matriarch of our family. While it was such a difficult day, I feel blessed I was able to be with both of them to the end. God be with you, Blondie and Sassie.
