i won't fulfill my promise of not buying any clothes/shoes/accessories for the rest of the year.
my beloved dad passed away on tuesday. in our culture we wear black as a sign of mourning, so it is for this most heartbreaking of reasons that i break my promise.
my heart is raw - dad was one of my best friends, we talked almost daily and were giggling like teenagers during this World Cup whenever one of our teams did well. in fact, my last conversation with him, about an hour before he had the massive heart attack that took his life, was full of silly comments and giggles.
i will be back in a few days to share more about my dad.
