How to Grieve

I am in no way an expert on anything, but after grieving for three years, there are a few helpful words of wisdom I want to share. It is important to note that just because something worked for me, doesn’t mean that it will work for you. Everyone is different, and everyone grieves differently.

Helpful Tips



The Smell of Flowers

They (they being scientists and psychologist) say that smell has one of the biggest impacts on memory. For me, this is especially true for the smell of flowers, and not so great memories.


Palm Rose & Cross

I feel very guilty that I have not blogged in a while. It has been a very busy past week or so, and I just have not had time to gather my thoughts. However, I’m back, and have lots of good stories to share.

Mom and Dad just got home from a week long vacation in San Diego, California. They stayed at this amazing hotel, and did lots of shopping at the cute little stores and boutiques along the beaches.



I always wanted to find a signature perfume that I could always wear, and people would associate myself with that fragrance. One day, I went to Sephora and used their very cool interactive Fragrance Finder to find the scent that best matched my personality. I found the perfume they recommended for me, fell in love with the smell, and bought it right then and there.


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.”


My Sunflowers <3

FINALLY, after waiting months and months, my sunflowers bloomed! I planted a row of them next to my house back in the early spring, and have been patiently waiting their arrival. My Daddy bought me a packet of seeds last December, and it is nice to see some flowers after all my hard work.


Pretty Pink Flowers

Recently, I have been picking flowers and putting them on Jenn’s Bench just because. I usually pick whatever wild flowers I can find by my house, and put them in a clear, plastic cup incase it gets blown over.
