This Week // 5.09.14

You may have noticed that the blog has been pretty quiet this week. I just didn't have it in me to work on the project that I had scheduled, and here's why….

You may have heard about #redballoonsforryan through Instagram or the web. Forgive me as I struggle to find the right words to describe this tragic loss for a young family. I shed tears because, as someone with young, rambunctious kids, it's something that I worry about constantly. It is something that can happen in a blink of an eye. And it is a tragedy that no parent should have to go through. That this Sunday is Mother's Day just makes my heart hurt even more for this family.

I do not know the family personally, but chose to help in the best way that I can, by donating here. Here's another option if you would like to donate to the family during this difficult time.

Additionally, many bloggers are helping by donating artwork with proceeds going to the family. Here are some beautiful examples by lucy of craftberry bush | mulberry press | idieh design | indie nook.

A community comes together to support others in times of need. In this case, our "little" blogging community has come together to help this family. Whether it's through monetary support, kind words or prayers, all are needed and are what make this community a great one.
