This is a very hard week. Very suddenly Tuesday morning my dad passed away, unexpectedly, in 10 minutes. I am heartbroken, and while I do not like to discuss this with even close friends, I feel broken inside. My dad is part of why I developed such a love for fashion so many years ago- after a good report card or high test grade, he would pick me up from school, and take me to the Americana to shop. We would pick out sweaters at Ralph Lauren, earrings for my mom at Tiffany, and the extra special bag purchase from Prada for a particularly special occasion. My dad bought me every piece of jewelry I own, commented on the shoe choices I would make in relation to the dress I paired with them, and never missed a chance feign surprise when I showed him my latest purchase (immediately after which he would ask how much it cost).

Tucker looks so much like my dad when he was young, I ache that he will not get to see him grow up and enjoy trips out on the boat as a boy. Not much helps right now, but I'm glad I have so many pieces of him and great life long friends (all of who my dad knows) around me.


  1. Christine, Hello from the blogging world. I dont know you, but I am really sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine losing someone so close and understand the drastic effects and the void it leaves behind. I bet he is and will always be very proud of you and your choices. Wherever he is, he will always be there for you in spirit. May his soul rest in peace. Once again, my condolences to you and your family in these tough times. On a side note, you look breathtakingly beautiful and so ethereal on your wedding day. Looks like a beautiful day filled with warm memories for life.
    Warm regards..
