Happy Friendversary With Jennifer DeVito

Oh Facebook. Curse you and your complex algorithms.



Bereaved Parents Made Me Angry

First and foremost, shame on me for not posting in a very long time.

Second, I’m ashamed that my Welcome Back post has a negative tone, but this is something that really upset me.

Like many of you, when I wake up in the morning, I take a few moments before my shower to check my phone. I review my emails, the news, Instagram, and Facebook. As I was scrolling thorough Facebook, I came across a post from the Bereaved Parents of the USA. Granted, I am not a bereaved parent, but this is the parent organization of a lot of helpful resources, and the organization that I have presented for a few times in the past.

As I was scrolling through my feed, I was dumbstruck by their post.

Mom, If you’re reading this,
this is the post that I was telling you about.

Please don’t click the link below, or scroll down to read more.
I don’t want this to ruin your day…




Sometimes, things happen with such remarkable coincidences, there is no way it can just be due to chance…



On Thanksgiving, I had a very simple Facebook status:


Today, as always, may we be thankful for all that we have.

Thirteen of you “liked” my status, and some of you even left kind comments.

Thank you ❤

Happy (Belated) Birthday Jen!

Thursday was Jennifer’s birthday, her 20th birthday, and the 2nd year we celebrated without her. I opted to go to work, and did my best to not dwell on the circumstances of the day. I got teary-eyed at some points, but I didn’t let it consume me. I even wore my pink confidence shirt to work as a little extra niff-love.


Thank You

Well, we made it through the one year mark. It was a rough day, but that was to be expected. However, I don’t think it would have been possible without the help and support from our friends and family, and for that, I want to say, “Thank you.”


Facebook is Mocking Me

I swear, I’m not crazy.

Now that I’ve cleared that up, Facebook is mocking me, just like that construction sign in my neighborhood. I am sure most, if not all of you have a Facebook account. I was online before reading a comment someone posted on Jen’s wall, and noticed something odd on my side bar.
