Today's previously planned post has been rescheduled upon hearing some news.

When I first started blogging a few years ago, one of the very first blogs I read and started following and communicating with was Leslie's blog.  She was a real girl with an amazing attitude, great style,  and delicious recipes.  I read and commented along as she got married and became a mom to two adorable little girls.  




Yesterday, I found out that she had passed away.  She shared on her blog and social media that she had a heart problem and was struggling and I know I said a couple of prayers for her.  

My heart broke reading that she had passed.  I'm sure many of you feel the same way about bloggers, there are some, especially those with whom you communicate back and forth, that feel like friends and whose lives you keep up to date with as if they were your friends in real life.  

This is an all too unfortunate reminder that life is precious and life short.  Heartbreakingly short.  There is a grieving family and two little girls who will grow up without their mother.  Go hug your loved ones a little tighter and be grateful for every second you have here, I know I am.

This isn't my usual type of post, but this really struck me and has brought me immense sadness and serves as a reminder to live each moment as fully as we can.  

There is a Go Fund Me page set up to help raise money for the college educations of Leslie's daughters.  You can see that here.  

You can also read through Leslie's blog here.
