Last Friday, one year after my mother died, my father passed away. I am in complete shock, losing both my parents in one year is just too much to comprehend. I will continue blogging as I much need the distraction, but it might not be as frequent as normal. Take care and hug your loved ones.

  • Hi.. I’m always always a big fan. I’m so deeply sorry for your lost. Grief as you might…. take your time. BIG HUGS…

  • Danielle,

    This must be so hard, still grieving your mother’s death, to now lose your father a year later. Please take care of yourself during this challenging time for you and your family. I’m sending you a big hug.

  • I’m so very sorry for your loss.
    Thankyou for your wonderful blog and I wish you and your family the strength to get through this.

  • feel free, they’re around you, they’re inside you, and there is no risk anymore, be sure of what you got from them, what you gave to them.
    you are not alone.

  • Deeply sorry for your loss. Thank you for this amazing blog. This is where I like to resort when things are not so good. Its truly a breath of fresh air. Wishing for the best for you and your family.

  • My deepest sympathies in this very tough time. Take all the time you need to process all this and I will be waiting for your inspiring posts whenever you are ready. A big hug!

  • I am so sorry to hear that your father has passed. I, silently, enjoy your blog ever week and have never contacted you. I know there will be others,just like me ,who wish you peace at such a sad time.

  • Lieve Danielle,

    Ben er gewoon stil van. Ik weet van onze sporadische ontmoetingen hoe heftig het overlijden van je moeder is binnen gekomen. En nu dit. Dan wordt schrijven over mooie dingen wel heel betrekkelijk.
    Doordat je je hartzeer hier met je lezers deelt zullen anderen inderdaad die extra knuffel, omhelzing geven en ‘ik hou van je’ uitspreken.
    Ik wens jou en je gezin sterkte.


  • I love reading your blog. I had never left a comment before but I wanted to this touch so many lives in such a beautiful way everyday..Please accept my condolences..I wish you strength and patience during this very difficult time..

  • Dear Danielle,

    My heart goes out to you. Hang in there, it will get a bit better with time (am talking from experience….)

  • Hi
    I frome Israel, an I truly love reading your blog.This is the first time I write a comment, This time I felt I should. Be strong, death is part of life. Shine On. Love, Rachel

  • I just recently found your wonderful blog and am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Know that we will be here when you are ready to return. Take your time and know that prayers are coming your way from all over the world.

  • Oh honey. I know. My father died in June 2000 and Mama in July 2001. No matter how old you are, when they’re both gone you feel like an orphan, untethered, disconnected. You never get over it. You just learn to live with it.
    Peace and blessings to you.

  • My sincere condolences.
    How I understand you, my dear… my father passed away on 18th Sept 2012 and my mother on the following day 19th ( her heart didn’t resist). They had 91 and 90 years old, I know, but it was a great, great shock. It still is. My dear and sweet parents. Life sometimes is very cruel.
    Be strong and my thoughts are with you.

  • Wat verschikkelijk. Ik weet hoe het (voor mij) is om één ouder kwijt te raken, maar allebei… Ik hoop dat je veel steun hebt aan de lieve mensen om je heen waarbij je kunt huilen, schreeuwen, kroelen en soms een beetje kunt lachen. Al is het maar heel even. Ik wens je heel veel sterkte de komende tijd en al die tijd daarna. Doe alles op je eigen tempo en houd elkaar goed vast. Het leven is soms zo oneerlijk.

    Weet dat er veel aan je wordt gedacht. Take care.

    Heel veel sterkte, rust en liefde gewenst.

  • Wat verdrietig. Heel veel sterkte gewenst voor jullie gezin. En hopelijk zijn de blije herinneringen aan allebei je ouders een troost.

  • Terribly sorry for your loss, Danielle. Your blog is such a source of inspiration. I hope that just some of the light you bring to others will come your way during these dark times.

  • My heart is with you.
    You share beautiful things with us
    and bring us happiness.
    Now we share in your sorrow.
    You may feel small in a big world.
    But to me you are big in a small world
    full of friends.
    Thank you for your blog.
    Your loss is sobering. It scares me.

  • I lost my parents within a month between both ,five years ago. You`ll be sad for a time till you start only remembering the good things and times. Hug you from Uruguay, this feelings are human, no matter where, strength and hope! You will be fine!

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing such beautiful and inspiring photos with us. Sending you hugs

  • Hi Danielle,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Sending to you my condolences.
    I’ve always been a big fan of your blog and you don’t know how much influence you have on me. I’ve never posted a comment before but this time I just had to. Will pray for you and your family.

    Big hug!

  • My father died last month. I’m still grieving. But someone once told me that grief is our way of staying close to someone after we lose them. I can’t imagine losing both parents. I’m lucky to still have my mother. I wish you the best.

  • That is enough to rip you apart for while. May beauty peak into your life where you allow, until then grieve your heart out and give yourself time. It’s the only thing that let me feel un-crazy after being orphaned. Thanks for making your audience see beauty.

  • Danielle
