My weekend, in a nutshell:

Wine. Sushi Date. Sake. Sleep. Coffee date. City Target! Halloween party. Sleep. Brunch date. Wine. Frozen yogurt. GIANTS!!!!

Friend wise, this was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time. I got to spend time with some really amazing women, catch up with old friends and hang out with new ones, and it was really wonderful.

But I feel guilty admitting that because it’s been a really hard weekend for my husband and a lot of his friends.

I’m sure most of you have heard about this horrific and tragic story by now. It is honestly the worst thing I can ever imagine happening. Ever. I don’t even have words.

My husband is friends with that family.

I’ve actually met them before, but only in passing.

Some of our friends are best friends with them.

And it’s just…. the worst thing in the world.

I really can’t believe it.

Usually when you read a story like that you think to yourself that stuff like that doesn’t happen to people like you. You are horrified and outraged and deeply saddened, but you go back to your life, thankful that horror and tragedy like that hasn’t touched you.

But then you find out that you know the people. That they are people just like you.

And it makes everything a million times more real, a million times more sad, and a million times more terrible.

I did a lot of really fun things this weekend but the Krims were always in the back of my mind. I didn’t go more than five minutes without thinking about them.

And my husband? Well, he’s having a really hard time. He thinks about Kevin and Marina and just is overcome with emotion.

I can’t even begin to fathom what they are going through right now.

It’s just unimaginable.

Please keep the Krim family in your prayers. I really don’t know how you go on living after something like this, but I’m sure prayers and positive thoughts and love will help.

And go hug the littles in your life.

Wow, I cannot believe you and your husband are connected to the poor family in NYC. I read this story over the weekend and was just horrified at the thought of the crime.
I cannot imagine the pain and heartache. It’s bad enough hearing parents lose their children, but to lose them in this way..in this shocking manner…is horrible.
If that nanny is the person to blame…I hope she gets her judgement.

In other news…odd as this is for a transition…I am glad to hear you had a great weekend. =) SF was fun to be in wasn’t it?
OH and I spy the Tipsy Pig from your Instagram feed. I have a crush on that place. The strawberry fields drink did it. =)
