While celebrating Christmas at my MIL 1.0’s house today, my cell phone rang. I couldn’t get to it quickly enough so it went into voicemail and, after playing a bit of phone tag, had my heart broken for the second time in less than a week.

A very dear friend of mine from Junior League suffered a massive heart attack on Christmas day. And died. Kim was only 36 years old and mom to two sweet boys, one mostly still a baby. She was an amazing woman, a petite blonde spitfire who nevertheless filled a room with her presence. I am in shock, stunned, crushed.

I’m taking a little blog break because I need to say goodbye to a friend far, far earlier than I ever could have expected.
