I've been doing a lot of associating lately. Every time I see a butterfly I think of her. Or a rose, or a gladiola, or anything purple. I constantly ask myself what I would be doing right this second if she was still alive. It truly is constantly. I've been doing a lot of baking to help me keep my mind off of her but it doesn't work. Just makes me wonder if I'd have her in the kitchen with me, helping me "clean" the bowls. I guess the good thing about all the baking is that I've found a new love and talent in making cupcakes. Maybe a future business? Who knows...

I continue to work on my memory boxes too which makes me wonder even more. Would I have even thought to do something like this if she hadn't died? Probably not. But, its another thing that makes me happy. I feel so much closer to her when I work on them. Over the last couple of weeks, I've gotten some more donations. Still, there's so much more I need and her birthday is coming up fast. If anyone wants to help out (or has some advice!), please let me know. You can read more about my project here.

Lastly, I'm sorry I haven't been commenting on many posts lately. I just haven't felt up to reading them. Some days my sadness is just too overwhelming and I just can't seem to find the right words. Please know that I think about all of my blog friends daily and hoping that our struggles get a little easier.
