Family day at Bowlmor Lanes

IMG_6344

Last week was pretty difficult for me as it marked three years since my mom passed away. Some days it feels like she has been gone for so long and then some days like it just happened yesterday. This year hit me hard and I believe that it is because with each year that passes it becomes more real that she is gone. And with each year that passes I become more aware of how much she has missed since she's been gone and then my heart breaks even more. When does it get easier? Does it get easier?

Two Saturdays ago, my family and I got together to honor our amazing mom. We know that she would want us laughing, smiling and enjoying each other’s company. We first planned on having a beach day but with the many thunderstorms we’ve been having in the last few weeks we had to ditch those plans and settle for bowling instead. It wasn't really settling though because we really enjoy a competitive game of bowling. We went to Bowlmor Lanes and it was the fanciest bowling alley I've ever been to!

It was a good time although there were still moments when I would feel bursts of sadness but I find that is how the month of August is now. August 8th will always be one of the worst, if not the worst, days of my life. It is the day I lost my amazing mom and every single day I just wish that she was still here. Here are a ton of pictures from several weekends ago.


Always on the road.

Wore purple lips as my mom's favorite color was purple.

Although we live the farthest away, Sean and I always tend to get to each place the earliest.
We checked out the little farm stand right next door while we wanted for my family to arrive.

There was a red car that my niece and nephews were so excited to get in!
It was dingy and torn up inside but they did not notice that at all, ha.

I thought it was pretty incredible how it was purple inside the bowling alley.

The thing is that any joy I feel during this time is because of my mom as she is responsible for creating my incredible family. I will forever be grateful to her for them. I love and miss you so much mom and wish every single day that you were still with us.
