I often hear that someone passed away or passed, or that someone is dearly departed, because “died” seems so harsh. But what is the most common way to hide that particular word?

I’ve had a great time home with my new son for the past four months, and am now back to work. I am easing back into the swing of things this week, and look forward to sharing more information starting next week.
I recently had a baby. My husband and I are very excited to start this next adventure, and as part of it, I will be taking about four months off to be home with our baby. I will also be taking a break from this blog during that time. I’ll be back in the spring. Have a great winter!
Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, where we take at least a few moments to remember those brave men and women who fought to keep Canada, and the world, free and safe.

I hope you are able to take a moment this morning to remember all those who gave their lives so that we could be free.
