Dressing Up for Sad Occasion

The last time I dressed up was this past Sunday (January 15th) for my mother’s visitation.

She passed away on Wednesday, January 11, 2017.  She had stage 4 small cell carcinoma which had been diagnosed back in September.  We knew it was coming, but still I managed to procrastinate on buying something suitable for the visitation until the very last minute.  Thankfully we have Amazon Prime and the clothes arrived in time and actually fit.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. What a whirlwind the last few months must have been for you and a terrible way to move into the new year.
