It's the Most Depressing Time of the Year




It's no big secret that holidays depress me since my sweet Joey's death. I want to love them and get all involved with decorating and shopping and celebrating, but it's so hard. I just feel like such an important piece of the celebration is missing.

An important piece of my heart and soul that I lost with Joey.

But, as my mother has reminded me, I have other children and a husband for whom I need to make things special.

I know, I do, and I try to find joy in the memories we've made as well as relishing in the new experiences with my sons.

Read more about how I am attempting to Bring Back the Joy in the Holidays in an original piece on the Huffington Post.

I'll likely be pretty quiet the next couple weeks as I gather with family and spend time with the boys who will be home on their school break. Wishing you and yours the happiest of holidays and the most wonderful wishes for a fabulous New Year.

xo, dear friends.
