Those of you who have been following along for quite a while might remember when I talked about my grandfather passing away. I can't believe it's going to be four years this June! With time, it does get easier, but I can tell you that you're heart will still have that piece missing. I was so lucky to have grown up so close to him, and to have learned what I did from his time here. 

When Spell Designs sent over this dress, I pulled it from the packaging, and my eyes welled up with tears. You see, my grandfather's nickname was Sammy Peacock. (Also why Kai's middle name is Samuel!) He used to own a nightclub called the Peacock Club, and the name really stuck with him. Now that he has passed, whenever I see a peacock, I feel like he's still here with me. 

Read what the peacock represents -> "Peacock feathers symbolize immortality and a connection with the spirit world as well as divine guidance and protection. Peacocks are connected to immortality due to the fact that in Biblical times, it was believed that the flesh of a peacock remained healthy and vital after death."


How crazy is that?
