sad news to share

Dear readers, you might have noticed my absence last week. There is a very sad reason for this. My mother, who has been ill since last year, passed away last Wednesday. We knew that this day would come but it is still very hard to cope with. Thank you to all of you who have supported me with comments and personal email over the past months. This is very much appreciated.

Although I am having a hard time right now and my heart is filled with grief, I will try to continue blogging on a daily basis as usual.

Love, Danielle
