You see, on Wednesday night, I found out that a dear friend’s father had passed away unexpectedly earlier that day. I was in complete shock! While it has been a year since I have seen that friend and even longer since I had seen his family, I still mourned as if they were my family.

All in all it was a good weekend.
Now, it’s back to reality! Hope everyone had a great weekend and don’t forget this week’s color challenge!
