The last seven days have been hard. We suddenly lost our piggy, Noodle, my Oma was hospitalized, then I finally got the endometriosis diagnosis I've been suspecting. We spent some time last night with Oma, who was communicating with us using her big, beautiful blue eyes. We tucked her in, kissed her good night, and then she went on to her next big adventure in the morning. We spent tonight with family and my heart is full - stories about Oma were peppered in our conversations and I couldn't help but feel lucky and sad and happy all at the same time. Now I'm spending time with my loving husband and the piggies, feeling like this weekend simultaneously lasted for weeks and minutes at the same time. Life is short and beautiful and weird. I also got a tattoo this weekend. I've been planning a tattoo for some time and found @alybrookeart about a month ago asking about a guinea pig skull piece. She is completely lovely and created a piece of art that I absolutely adore! Thank you so, so much. Bonus pictures of my two piggies because they make my heart happy.
