Lucky to be Irish!

- Uncategorized

If you couldn’t tell by my super pale skin I’m very Irish, but I must admit I’ve never really liked the color green and I’ve never been a big fan of traditional Irish food. So other than Saint Patrick’s Day I didn’t really think much about my Irish background. On Saint Patrick’s Day my family and I would always go to this restaurant called the Shamrock. Of course it was always super packed because it was the only authentic Irish…

Random Acts of Kindness Day

- Uncategorized

I must admit lately I have struggled with showing kindness. Between my niece passing and my uncle suffering with cancer I’ve really struggled. How can I show kindness when I’m upset and mad that these horrible things keep happening to my family? For me I am not trying to be unkind on purpose, but i’m not trying to be nice either. Sometimes I have to put an effort into being nice especially when Im grieving. When I look at my…

So I had originallyΒ plannedΒ this super cute blog post about mine and littles outfits and I was going to talk all about our exciting plans for Valentine’s Day and my birthday…but as I’m quickly learning life is so unexpected and plans change. As if my family has not dealt with enough death recently from the passing of my niece, I was told yesterday that my uncle only has 48 hours to live. He has been battling cancer for about 8 months…
