In the Deep…

Hi loves…I’m sorry but I am having trouble discussing fashion or style today. It all just seems so trivial in the grand scheme of things. The tragic incident that occurred Friday in Newtown, CT on Friday has stayed on my mind since. I have prayed and cried and cried and prayed and I still cannot understand or comprehend the violent act that took place. As a teacher, I pray I never have to be put in that kind of position with my students and that they never have to experience something so horrifying in their lives. As a future mother one day, I pray I never have to receive that kind of call…i choke up just imagining. My deepest prayers and thoughts are with the families and friends of those precious kids and victims knowing that God will give them peace, strength, and fills in the gap with whatever they need during this trying time.

Linking up Here today

    The Newton shootings shocked me to the core. Kind of like, is nothing sacred anymore? I never cry at the news, but I was bawling at the thought of those poor innocent babies that are no longer with us.

    On a lighter note… loving your masterful and fun use of color, especially with that awesome orange bag! ๐Ÿ™‚
