Rain and Leaves on a {Mostly} Wordless Wednesday . . .


Yesterday was a rainy day.  My favorite kind of day.  The kind of day when I throw on a bra under my jammies and consider myself dressed.  : )  Today it's sunny but my mood is still rainy.  I didn't sleep well last night.  My brain has been spinning.  I have those couple of days out of the month where I can't seem to get out of my own way.  Hormones suck.  Plain and simple.  Today is also the 11th anniversary of the passing of my dad.  November is a bit of an emotional month for us.  My first husband passed during the month of November as well, almost exactly a year before.  I would dread turning the calendar after Halloween was over.

In the midst of all that sadness, there was still a bright spot.  My first born baby celebrates a birthday tomorrow.  Connor will be 24 which is a year younger than I was when I had him.  WHAAAAT???  He's the guy on the right with the hat.  Trevor is on the left and that baby in the middle is me.  I was 30 in that picture.  Where does the time go???

Tonight we're going out for a little early birthday celebration with my father in law and brother in law from my first marriage.  Since we moved, we don't get to see them nearly as much as we used to so it will be good to spend some time with them.

Have a great rest of your day ~ Wendy

Happy Birthday Connor! And that adorable photo....they grow up so fast!
So sorry to hear you're going through a rough spot. I know how you feel....the holidays are hard when you're missing the loved ones who have passed.
I will be holding you in my thoughts. Take care and have a good week.
