New Month, New Me

Hello my lovelies,

How has your summer been? You know about mine, and in case you missed out I am going to enlighten you. Spring started out beautifully until I was notified that my mom was in the hospital and despite a great surgery was suffering and deteriorating, so I booked a flight within hours, flew home to Europe, saw mom for three full days and knew that those hours and days were our last days together. I felt it, and I am sure she did too. It was the most devastating, most surreal experience ever and even though I knew that at some point life will end I didn't want mom to leave like this let alone this early. I think I spent May in denial. I knew it happened but couldn't fully grasp its reality. June came along, and with my birthday month I also learned that my body was exhausted from everything I went through in May. I not only lost my mother, I lost my home, cleaned up, organized a ton and yes, did all that by myself. Yes, I had awesome friends helping me out and without their generosity, help, heart, and patience I would not have made it through, but most of the stuff I had to wrestle with alone. July was a whirlwind of emotions. My cousin got married and I flew to Turkey to attend her special day, I had to see a few more friends of mine before I was finally able to fly back home to California. 

I flew home last week. I am home. It was time. I'm finally where I belong. I am with the love of my life, in our new home trying to find my path in life again. Things between us have not changed but I know I have to work on a few things in order to grief accordingly and to move on. My favorite person and I will work on this together and I can already tell you that this will help me heal.

NOW, I took quite a break from blogging. I missed it dearly. I missed this community, and I missed sharing recipes, or my healthy challenges, photos, and life stories with you. Mostly, I missed you! With August started today I decided I needed to get back into some sort of a blog groove. 

So what do you say?! New month, new start, new everything?! 
I'm even updating and working on my summer list - go check it out!!
Oh, and I'm trying to catch up on blog reading as well...does that count towards those six books I wanted to read over the summer?!

Welcome back!
I can only imagine what you've gone through the last couple months and I've thought about you. I am very awed how you handled it all. With all going on there is still lots of life loving coming through and I really hope you find time to grief without any errand to run now. Looking forward to read along.
All the best to you, Tobia
