I have not abandoned thee, Oh Blog! There's just been a heckuva lot going on.
First let me start off by saying that a lot of our time and energy has been suddenly diverted towards our family for the past several weeks. The world lost a amazingly wonderful man in late January. My father-in-law passed away after a long battle with cancer. He has certainly left a very large hole in our world and our hearts. I am forever grateful to a man, who I loved as much as I love my own father, for raising a son just like him ;). Without that man, my husband would not be the amazing person I love so very much. He taught him how to be...pretty much, the perfect man (well at least the perfect man for me). He has truly left an indelible mark on the world around him...one that will never be forgotten. I'm so happy to know that such a man is part of my Forever Family.

With Isla when she was about 1 year old. She loved him so much....just sat and stared when I took this picture for like 30 minutes :)
We all loved him so...
I'll end with this tribute here. I don't feel like adding the rest of the stuff I wanted to say is appropriate, so I will post another post with all of the other stuff that's been going on with us.
