A Short Break

After an unexpected death in my family I have been reluctant to dye. I’m not sure why. Last Sunday, my sister Asuncion passed away peacefully from stage four breast cancer. It was unexpected in that I guess I never fully admitted myself to think of her cancer as a finality. The last week has been much of a fog with plans to go out west for her memorial service, looking for old family pictures, and plain old dread. So I hope I have your understanding that the shop will be closed for a few days as I put all of my energies towards this. I hope to reopen sometime this weekend with some new colors and a sale 🙂

I leave you with a picture of my sister and I, taken when I was about four years old. This is how I remember her best.
