According to Instagram

I don't know about you, but do you ever look at someone's Instagram account as a whole? Each picture tells a story, but if someone doesn't know you personally, you could probably get the wrong idea..haha. I try to post pictures the make sense or at least coralate with the current events happenening, but it's fun to look at your own pictures as a stranger. And that's how I came up with this post....

So According to Instagram:
I have perfect hair...

In reality my ends need a trim really bad! Also the color is fading where my ombré was, so I have to touch up my hair here pretty soon!

According to Instagram:
I'm obsessed with my cat Cupcake.

This is actually true. I love my cat sooooo much! I take pictures of her everyday. She has the funniest personality out of our 3 cats, and you can always catch her in a funny sleeping position. If you can tell from the picture, she loves to try and fit in everything! 

According to Instagram:
I do fancy things with my hair.

I don't. In fact as I'm writing this my bangs are pinned back and my hair is in a messy bun. My hair is always a mess! Haha!

According to Instagram:
I live near the ocean...

This is true. The Jersey Shore is actually very beautiful. We live more south than what most people think, I'm only 30 minutes from Atlantic City. I love the beach and I need to be near  water always. The beaches are very clean here too, which actually surprised me. I like to go before the tourist season starts, just so I can have alone time with the waves.

Anyway, that's it for now...I think I might do this post once a week :) if you do something similar send me a link so I can see your post!

Saying Goodbye

Monday, April 28, 2014

One of the hardest things in life is saying goodbye to a loved one. This past month has been a very hard month for my family. My wife's grandafather (Pop pop) passed away on the 11th. We were all with him when he was in the hospital and were able to say goodbye. He was never left alone, family was always by his side. In fact I tried to go there as much as I could, even on my lunch breaks from work.  

               

I'm sorry I haven't been blogging, but this last month has just been heart wrenching for all of us. Pop pop was a man who was dearly loved by everyone who has ever known him. Sadly I only knew him for 4 short years, but he welcomed me into the family like I was one of his own, including both of my kids. He had such gentle eyes and a warm hug. He showed me what a loving and caring grandfather could be. He loved my tattoos, told me silly jokes, and always made me smile. He never once cared about the fact that we were gay, he was very open-minded and accepting. In fact when we would go visit, and I would look at Jes and smile, he would just smile and say "That's so cool." I will always remember that. He lived a long fulfilling life, and gave so many wonderful memories to his family. He will never be forgotten.



We miss you so much Pop pop..
