Here trigger, trigger, trigger

There are dates in time that just have so much energy attached to them. Not only is today June 26th, the day of my mom's viewing 5 years ago, but I had to write the date today at least 10 times. Oh triggers, you old so and so.

Everlasting Memories – Photo Engraved Necklace & Handmade Wooden Cremation Box Review

I was invited to try on a few things from Everlasting Memories, an online store that provides cremation urns and jewelry to remember loved ones and pets.

I had never before had to deal with a person or animal being cremated. Until then, they sat in the Rainbow Bridge bag, inside of a paper bag next to the cremation receipt.

Oh yeah, and my favorite cat in the world, Bastian, died while we were traveling. My heart was broken into a thousand pieces, everyday a stretch for sanity, living and working remotely out of a ’95 Fleetwood Flair RV… so I thought I would have time to write and the truth is, I probably had the time but the...
