ANNOUNCEMENT


Dear blogging friends, 
It is with a heavy heart that I let you know today I am going to be completely absent 
from the blog for several weeks.

I am traveling to Spain immediately due to an emergency involving my Dad. At the age of 79 and suffering from Parkinson's and other medical issues, he has fallen down the stairs at home and broken his hip. 

They had to do emergency surgery and although he made it through it, the outcome is not good.
We don't know if it is due to the shock of having to undergo surgery in such drastic circumstances, but it seems 
the Parkinson disease has advanced tremendously in just hours.
My mom needs me now so I am leaving right away to help them both in any way I can.

I am not closing down the blog, but, until further notice, I won't be able to host my Tuesdays at Our Home Link party and you won't see any post from me. I want to fully dedicate my time while I am in Madrid to help them and be with them since I don't know what the future holds for our family.

Thank you all for understanding. 
Please keep them both in your prayers and I will see you when I get back.
XOXO
