Let Them Eat Peeps!

Tomorrow is Feb 25. Seven years since my dearest sister passed from this life into the next. Seven long years that still tear my soul apart at times. I miss her so much. She was my confidante in so much. She loved my kids with a fierceness, and I knew she would always appreciate a good kid-related story.
I was always able to be just who I was when I was with her. Not only was that okay, it was perfect. She loved me as I was at all times, and always believed the best in me. Do you know how badly you want to make someone like that proud?
I still want to make her proud. I miss her like crazy. My heart aches every day.

So, tomorrow, our family will continue our tradition of St. SzuSzu's Day, and eat Peeps, in honor of my sister, Susan. It was a family joke, as she once bit the heads of of the Peeps in every Easter basket when she was about 4 years old. She also liked Peeps.
So, in honor of her spirit, I urge you to pick up some Peeps for Feb. 25. Eat them - this is important - heads first!

And most of all, enjoy!
