Sad news

facebook-20160113-195738Before I get back to a regular blogging routine again, I cannot ignore the fact and not post about why I’ve disappeared for so long.

I don’t blog about personal stuff often, but I wanted to address the loss of my most favourite person in the entire world. After a courageous 12 year battle with cancer, my Dad passed away on January 12. A strong and silent man without any complaints ever, I held his hand til the very end as he left us peacefully.

facebook-20160113-195424Grieving a death is such an endless amount of strange, weird feelings that I don’t even know what to say to describe it.

Although there’s so much I would like to tell you about my Father, I’m keeping things short and sweet, just like my Dad would’ve preferred. I’m just so happy to have had my dad in my life for so long. I am so proud to be my Father’s daughter.

I’m doing okay, thanks for everyone’s thoughtful comments.

It has felt nice to take a much needed break from the blog, and social media. But I want to come back, I’m ready to start blogging again. So here I am. Spiffykerms is back.

Talk to you guys again soon.
