A twenty-something girl's take on the world.

Too old to know better & too young to give a damn.

Forever missing Joey, the limo driver.

Some days are worse than others, but around the holidays are when times get tough.

I had a special relationship with my grand pop – one that every little girl dreams of. Matter of fact, I rarely ever referred to him as “grand pop.” It was always Joey (and he loved it.) Joey’s grandchildren (all 21 of us) were his world, he lived & breathed for us… his pride & joy.

Although Joey passed away over a year ago, I constantly feel him around… especially when I wear his favorite flannel (which happens to be right now.)

I miss him immensely & wish for him back every day, but there’s something so unspeakably comforting having him up there, rooting me on, guiding me in the right path, watching me accomplish my dreams.

P.s. When I start to feel him around, the lights go dim… Ironically, as I’m writing this post, the lights suddenly went dim.

Shout out to my favorite guardian angel xo

Here’s to Diem.

Have you ever watched a television show and felt like you really knew the person/character/whatever? Not in like a psycho-stalker way, but in the way that you’ve watched them for so long and have watched them grow as a person, that you feel like you kinda know them… even though you don’t.

I’m sort of at a loss for words (which never happens.)

Diem Brown, what a true inspiration – the girl never gave up, the definition of a fighter. Always full of positivity. Unfortunately, after a long vigorous bout with cancer, Diem’s beautiful soul has lost it’s fight.

I’m not going to make this long, I just felt a need to acknowledge the life of a courageous woman. Rest in Peace, angel.

On that note, remember how blessed you are. Life is a gift & can be taken away from any one of us at the blink of an eye. Don’t take anything for granted. The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for.
