Life Update (Continued)

For those of you who saw last Sunday's post and my tweets, you'll know that my beautiful mom has recently been diagnosed with brain cancer. She had her surgery on Monday morning, and we were so thrilled with the outcome. My mom was in the operating room for about ten hours, but the majority of the tumor was successfully removed! The rest will be taken care of with chemo and radiation, which will start within the next couple of weeks.

I would just like to thank you all for your prayers + support. All of the tweets, comments, and messages seriously meant so much to me; it was definitely a good reminder of why I love to blog! I mentioned in my last post that I may be taking a blogging break. I have decided that I may not be taking a break necessarily, but I don't think I will have seven posts go up each week like I was hoping to. Posts will go up randomly until I feel as if it's okay to get back into a normal blogging schedule.

I hope you've all had a great week! XO
