entering the desert for awhile...see you on the other side...

Hello my friends. How goes life in your neck of the woods? Things here are cold, foggy, a bit dreary but then it is winter in NoVa. This is about the norm. I would love a good snow storm. New England shouldn't have all the fun. Today I spent several hours watching a sweet three year old and had ...

Today marks one month since my beautiful girl went home to her Beloved. I woke up this morning to a winter white landscape outside and both my guys home. One tele-commuting for the day and the other with a rare day off. ALL of us together as we were that night one month ago.

As I type this, I am sitting on the sofa in my jammies, surrounded by soft blankets, a full box of kleenex, and a cup of steaming hot tea. I got up at the crack of noon after taking some seriously awesome Vicadin laced cough syrup last night. I actually slept without hacking up a lung for the ...

It has been a week since God called my Courtney home to Him. One whole week and I am still living, breathing and making it through my days, dazed, at times confused, at other times consumed with tears and sadness but taking it one step at a time. As much as I hate this, I know that we will ...

Courtney Elizabeth Lenaburg: Aug. 18, 1992 - Dec. 27, 2104

sometimes they leave you halfway through the woods...
Today was raining and cold here in NoVa, so I ditched the house cleaning, grabbed my girlfriend Marjanna and we went off to lunch and a movie. After a fabulous bowl of Spaghetti alla Carbonara and a delightful cappuccino, we saw "Into the Woods". It was a p...

The last few days have been a blur of grief, tears, laughter and more hugs than I have ever received in my life. My Courtney's wake and funeral Mass were beautiful and awesome. They were celebrations filled with so much love and joy, my heart could barely take it all in.
