so first things first. Happy Valentines Day! Came home to pretty white roses, heart-shaped sugar cookies, and a valentines balloon! 🙂 then Dizzle cooked dinner while I put away laundry (that he did today!).
and we had an amazing time on our cruise. Honestly could not have asked for better weather, excursions, food, desserts, etc. It was incredible.
However… we got some terrible news when we arrived back in SLC.
My cousin Brad passed away in a tragic accident on Saturday, February 12th. He was flying his parachute plan down in the Henry Mountains area when he was caught in a downwind gust and crashed into a ravine. He leaves behind his beautiful wife Tahsha and their adorable little girl Leah. We are all absolutely heart broken over this horrible tragedy. Brad was only 28 years old. Life can change in an instant. A tragedy like this makes me think that God really does have a plan for us all and that when it is our ‘time’, it is our time, regardless of what we are doing in our mortal life. I have a hard time believing that anything could be more important than Brad being a loving Daddy to Leah, and husband to Tahsha, but whatever it is that God needed Brad for, it must be an incredible job. Our family lost an AMAZING man and he will be greatly missed!
and I will post about the cruise this week, i promise.
