I know many of you have noticed I have been absent from the blog. The reason is this: My boyfriend’s best friend, a guy he knew since childhood, hung himself on Saturday. We went to the funeral yesterday. I was too distraught to post anything, and too busy hosting people at my house, comforting others, etc.
