Send Something Beautiful

Over the weekend, our family lost our Abuelito. I’ve only known him for seven years (technically he was Chris’ Grandfather) but he really penetrated my heart. Abuelito was my Abuelito, blood or not. We kept it to ourselves for a few days, so that we could process our loss in private. I don’t want to go into a huge post about my feelings of loss but rather share something that makes me happier in a time of grief, in hopes that you can make someone in the same situation happier as well. 

The flowers shown above were a gift from my best friend, Marie. These aren’t your typical funeral flowers, rather really stunning happy bright flowers. Looking at them makes me smile. For a few minutes, we could forget our sadness and instead celebrate life. I’d recommend something happy like this rather then those creepily large circular flower arrangements or large crosses made of roses. Of course this is my personal opinion but I’ve never seen anyone really happy to take home those big rose arrangements from the funeral home. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Give someone a hug? Sounds like a weird request but you know…  I’m sure there is someone (maybe you?) that needs one right now.

Every Saturday I share my favorite links from the week. Do you want a chance to be featured? Email your best articles or videos to with “Link Love” in the title and I’ll bookmark the ones I like to feature in a future post! 

  • I didn’t realize there was a wrong way to breathe. How you breath can actually impact your stress level?! Good to know. Thank you HeyKayli for the info!


  • You know I’m obsessed with monthly subscription services, it’s pretty obvious. One that I hadn’t heard about was a monthly box for pregnant and new Mom’s. I can’t wait until I need this one!
