I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who left a comment to let me know you're thinking of me and keeping me and my family in your prayers. If you don't know already, my father - who was only 56 - passed away suddenly last Saturday morning of an acute heart attack.
We were very close and I did not handle his passing well at all. I spent the majority of this past week in Pennsylvania, where my family is from, helping with everything and just being there for everyone - especially my mom. Below is a photo of my dad and I when I was little; it's one of the only photos I have with him, as he was not a man to be in photos.
He was an amazing dad and will be miss greatly.
I am now back in Virginia and will be getting back on track. I have a ton of blog posts lined up for you all, but it may take me a few days to a week or so to get back on track.
Thank you again to everyone; your support and kind words at this difficult time are greatly appreciated!
