sad, sad, sad

believe it or not, i am actually putting posts together about the missionary madness + wedding. coming soon.

until then... here's a sad story i just can't stop thinking about.

this week i got an email about doing a custom poster for someone whose friend had passed away kind of suddenly. it gets sadder. she left behind a husband and the cutest triplets that just had their first birthday a few weeks ago. this friend had been diagnosed with cancer five years before (three weeks after her wedding!) and had been battling it on and off. she wanted to do a print to hang in the nursery and remind the triplets of their brave and beautiful mom. the quote is christopher robin talking to winnie the pooh, and it sort of breaks my heart every time i read it.



































cancer is the worst.

  1. This made me tear up.. I can't handle this type of stuff after having Hadley - it hurts to much to even think of it. That is a beautiful poster though.

  5. P.S. I have been holding the cutest, squishiest, best baby ever (seriously, he never cries and he sleeps for four hours at a time. at two weeks) for the last week and still, no urge to have one. It's not going to happen, I'm pretty sure. Sorry! :|
