It may not be considered the “cool” thing to talk about your losses and ups and downs in life, but I’m not perfect nor am I here to follow trends (check out my LWD post) . I go through things just like everyone else, I’m just not ashamed to talk about it. One of those things being the loss of both my grandparents during the month of October. October was challenging, yet beautiful all at the same time. During my time of pain and grief, I also felt peace knowing that both of my grandparents were pain free and in heaven together. The beautiful part was getting to spend time with my family. I flew to California a few days after hearing the news so that I could be with them. There, I was reminded how much my grandparents enjoyed being surrounded by family more than anything. I wore this blue dress as a symbol of honor to my late grandpa. His favorite color was blue.
