I thought that I should share the reason for my absence from the diary. Shortly after my husband and I returned from our honeymoon in February my mother-in-law became ill. At first we thought it was just a cold and that she was tired from her recent travels. In April our fears were confirmed, she had cancer. She made it through a difficult surgery and we were hopeful for recovery. But, sadly that didn't happen. My sweet mother-in-law passed away August 25.
I'll post soon as we are back on Kauai.
Thanks for reading.
