A Heartbreaking Loss

A Heartbreaking Loss


I have received many emails in the past few weeks from readers asking about Paris. The truth is I never finished my blog post about Paris because of a personal tragedy at home. Twinkie, my sweet fur-baby, has passed away. I cannot begin to express my grief in words.


If any of you have followed my blog for more than a minute, you know that I loved and adored my lovely little dog more than just about anything on this earth. Twinkie was my truest friend for 9 years and, when she left, took a piece of my heart that can never be filled. I am doing my very best to patch it but a hole this big will take a long time to heal. She might have been small in size, but my tiny girl and her huge personality were a very big part of my family.

Thank you all for your sensitivity and understanding during this very sad time. I am doing my best to find the strength to walk back into the world of the living... And when I arrive, you'll be the first to know about it.
