Now, onto the not so good part of the summer. Four years ago, Shannon, my only sister, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Over time, the cancer spread, especially into her bones and liver. Then, at the end of August, my sister wasn't feeling right and was admitted to the hospital. When I realized that she probably wouldn't be coming home, I spent every night I could with her at the hospital. My amazing husband gave up working his night shifts so that he could stay home with the kids while I was a the hospital with Shannon. She was there for about a month. She passed away at the age of 38. I miss her like crazy, and can't believe how short a time we had with her. She was an amazing human being; this short paragraph and one picture can't convey what she was like. A future post perhaps?

I'm just starting to feel like starting up with the blog again. I thought the blog needed a fresher look, so that's why you see the changes. Hopefully this will signify a fresh start all around.
