What we thought we be a 3 week break, quickly turn into three months…
With the shock of our brother’s death, our lives have really been shaken.
Six days after Phil’s funeral baby Ben was born.
Everything went according to plan. Emily and Ben were home within a few days, and Ben is literally piece of heaven…sleeping through the night and as good as gold.
Within a few weeks of Ben being born Emily’s father-in-law declined rapidly and passed away. I love this picture of him with my mother-in-law at our wedding.
The week after that our sister Helen welcomed baby boy, Ollie!
Our little world has changed so much!
There have been many tears, prayers and contemplation. Life has become much more sacred and we’ve been grieving and celebrating by spending our days together as a family. We’ve had more family come and visit us from England than we’ve ever had before, and although it’s for sad reasons we’re soaking up this precious time and reconnecting with all those we love so much.
Long, unhurried walks, days by the pool, toddler dance parties. Good food and just enjoying each others company.
We have been blessed to have such amazing support from those around us. Thank you, thank you for your sincere and kind messages!
The blog has been calling us! We’re coming back. We have a long list of projects, and goals and can’t wait for life to feel normal again as we wind down summer and begin our favorite time of year.
Much love, Sarah and Emily xxx
