wordless-ish wednesday

my grandma died friday.

i'm not ready to write about her yet.
i'm not good with death.
the first few days i tell my self everything is going to be fine over and over again.
the next few days i realize it's not.
and then i cry.
a lot.

i feel peace in my heart knowing she got to be a part of my children's lives.

even if it was a small part for my smallest baby.
my grandma rubbed her sweet tummy for an hour and baby stella was in heaven.

she was amazing.


  1. OMG Marissa, this is so beautiful. So tender and sweet. I loved your grandma and grandpa so much. They were such a big part of my life. I am soo sorry for your loss. And at the same time so thrilled that your children will have memories and photos to remember Dotty by. And Caroll looks so dear. I am crying while listening and looking. My heart is with your family. Much love, Ginger

  2. Margie Thomas Skidmore Awww Maris, I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. I'm glad she got to meet sweet Stella. Love you.

  3. These are beautiful images. I got teary as I looked at them. So, so incredibly sorry for your loss. It's really hard loosing a grandparent. When my grandpa died, it felt like a part of my childhood was ripped out of me. I still cry about it every once and a while and it happened 8 years ago.

    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
