Tragedy struck one of my favorite Edmonton Oiler goalies over the weekend. Jussi Markkanen and his wife Sanna-maria suffered a tragic loss on Sunday, September 21. Their oldest son, 4 year old Olli took a tragic fall out of their 5th floor apartment window.
As a parent and someone who has lost a child, I am still at a loss for words. I just know that Olli will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Especially his Mother, Father and younger brother, Juho.
My heart goes out to the Markkanen family.

My nephew Jacob!
He came into the world a little earlier than expected (he was due on the 25th) but is a happy, healthy little boy! My sister is doing great and my brother-in-law is happier than anything to have a boy.
My niece, Colby will make a great big sister!
Can’t wait to see them again tomorrow!

Not only did 2 of the sweetest and most handsome bloggers in the world get married recently, Ellen Degeneres & Portia de Rossi did as well. But before I go on, I just wanted to send my Congrats to the happy couple, Mark & Eiain . May all of your dreams come true. Keep each other safe and happy and love one another eternally. I love you both!
I was watching Ellen yesterday and she shared video of their day. It was so beautiful.

This goes out to my blogger buddies. I am very sorry I have not been commenting, replying, etc. I am in the middle of working on my Vegas post and struggling to do so. I seem to be having an off time/day/week/month. And for that, I apologize.
I am excited to dig into my bag and binders of notes I recovered from my parents and share some of my silly teenage years of loving and crushing on a multitude of boys. I was a geek in school, so my crushes were just that. Crushes. So you’ll have to bear with me and my life as a dullard.
So once I get my arse in gear and finish my Vegas post, I will get on the note reading and reporting as well as hop on your blogs and comment.
