I'm wrapping up a week-long break today. Jordan and I have been staying with his family in his hometown of Pembroke since Monday following the news that his grandmother and great uncle both passed away last Sunday.
It's been a week of highs and lo's. He has a HUGE, unbelievably loving, generous and close-knit family, and it felt like the entire town came together for the joint funeral in a way I'd never seen before. Amidst all the grief, I've seen endless compassion, love and laughter from everyone here and I'm feeling very lucky to be part of such a wonderful group of people.
