About Me

But we’re facing the sunset, and for a moment it looks like it’s rising and we are on the other side of things – 311

This blog has taken many forms over the years, but for the latter part of my 20s and early 30s it remained blank.  I’m reviving it as a catchall for the thoughts, experiences, and personal learnings I may gain from navigating my “life after loss.”  I’m on the other side of going through one of the worst experiences you can imagine: terminal cancer taking my beloved husband Dan at the age of 39, only 2.5 years into our marriage.

I have no idea what I am doing or where my future is going now.  The roads are many and vast and open.  I am still here for reasons I may never fully grasp, and sometimes it gets dark and confusing.  But there is also light, and happiness, and gratitude.  I’m trying to navigate all of those.

Bear with me as I do.
