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, happiness, and gratitude. I’m trying to navigate all of those.

Bear with me as I do.
