My cute cousins decided it was high time to have a girls trip, so this weekend we loaded up and drove south. Why south you ask? Is it the 108 degree temp you love? Is it the natural beauty of the desert? Is it the allure of the lights on the strip? No, no. It's the TJ Max. That's right, TJ Max, and Trader Joe's, and Ross, and the Olive Garden, and Target.
Let me tell you, my eyes have been opened to the sheer joy of shopping cheap. These gals are die hards. We literally shopped until we dropped. I have never laughed so hard in all my life. It was nothing short of a miracle. I have spent almost a year in a very dark place fighting my way out. I have always been able to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but that light always seemed so distant, and sometimes shaded. This weekend gave me a peek into the sunshine. I will be forever grateful to the cousies for that.
This is my beautiful cousin Patty, who set the glamour standard for the trip.

This is the story of one woman's navigation through grief following the loss of her true love, and husband of almost eleven years. Questions of who am I now, questions of how to raise the kids alone, and leaning how to live again will be confronted, hopefully in a positive and meaningful light.
