January 21, 2017, marks 13 years since my mother-in-law’s passing.Lovingly referred to as Nana in the Sun, there are not too many days that go by without one of us referring to her in some way. Selena got excited the other day when we talked about our Greek dinner plans in honour of Nana in the Sun on Saturday, and innocently and excitedly asked if we would get to see her. Although wishing we could have said yes, we reminded Selena that she is never far away and is always in our hearts.A beautiful cheers to the woman I will always wish I could have met, Elena xo

Insomuch as having a husband means you have a partner to share your life with, it in no way eliminates stress. It, at times, brings a whole new meaning to stress and difficult times.It’s in times of stress that I like to remember to bring myself back to the present. Remember who and what is actually important, and remind myself that you only live once (YOLO!)My personality has recently been defined as “caretaker.” I would say that is quite accurate. My friends and family know I would do anything for them at the drop …
