Memorial Day Weekend
This weekend was both good and bad. It started out great. Natalie and I took some engagement photos for a cute couple out here in Hawaii. Then, she led me straight into a surprise baby shower! Yes, I am a whole three months and I am already having baby showers. I guess I was really really surprised because everyone said I stood in the doorway with a confused look on my face for an uncomfortably loooong time. Thank you Paige and London!
Our weekend was calm and productive. However, my grandmother passed away Sunday night. We have known for a while that she was going to die soon and so we have been expecting it. My dad has been able to travel several times in the last month to spend time with her which is really great. She died peacefully in her sleep with family around her. I don't enjoy death at all but there is something so beautiful about the way our whole family was so sure that our grandfather was there to greet her on the other side with open arms. I truly believe families can be together forever.
Our memorial day was exactly what I needed. We spent time with close friends barbecuing on the beach. We got an old grill for free at a garage sale and Conor cleaned it up. He spent the whole time making everyone's food and made me remember again why I a married him (not that I forgot) but, he is just so thoughtful and kind to everyone. He goes out of his way to do nice things for others all the time. This may sound morbid but, I am so glad that he is the one that will be greeting me on the other side. Not for a long long time of course.
