I don't feel like I can write a new blog post without addressing the tragic loss of Leslie from A Blonde Ambition. While I didn't know her personally, we were blogging acquaintances who followed one another on social media. I have read her blog for years and years. It has always been one of my favorites. My heart is absolutely broken for her and her family and to be perfectly honest, I've been crying all day long. I, like so many of you, had been keeping Leslie in my prayers over the last few months. Just yesterday I was driving around town and she popped into my mind and I wondered how she was doing. Little did I know that just hours before, she had gone to be with Jesus.
I will greatly miss reading about her life with her sweet husband and precious girls. I will miss her fashion tips. I often went out and bought items that she blogged about (she had great style!) and I learned how to tie a blanket scarf watching her tutorial. She inspired me as a blogger and her Instagram feeds was one of my favorites to follow. I think it was clear to everyone that she was just a good person and a sweet girl. A beautiful Momma who adored her babies and a wife who very much loved her husband.
I often times wanted to reach out to Leslie to see if she wanted to meet up sometime. We live in the same town, are both mommas to littles, bloggers, lovers of fashion and fans of the Razorbacks. I'm wishing so badly now that I had. We will be friends one day when we meet in Heaven. Until then, I'll be praying for her family, who are suffering from unimaginable pain, that the Lord will give them comfort and strength.
Be Blessed Leslie.
