Here is a picture of my good ol LB playing ball. He just made a shot and put up 143 (I love you). Think about it.
So sweet and funny at the same time. That's my honey.
House of Bennetts
Hey now. I'm Treana...welcome to my little slice of the internet where I get to use exclamation points with abandon!!! We do more here than overuse certain forms of punctuation. Around these parts you'll find DIY projects, budgeting ups and downs and tools, photography fun, food goodness, music loves, and hopefully a little inspiration. We talk about anything and everything here and hope that you'll join us in our mutual weirdness we call life. For more about us, our wedding, and our lives, visit the 'Bout the Bennetts page. (I so wanted to put an exclamation point there).
Today my Papa gets laid to rest. I wish that I had something more elegant and beautiful to say, but that was never our relationship- elegant and beautiful. It was rough and frayed and at times, abusive. When I was in 5th grade he got sober and I also realized that my birth mom was never coming back for me. On one hand I thought things were finally going to get better, on the other I thought I was completely alone and panicked and afraid of everything falling apart as my brother slipped into his own addictions. See- definitely not elegant and beautiful. What was beautiful was how hard he tried for my brother and I. How when I went back to Washington six years ago, we got to say everything we needed to say to each other. We got to heal. That- that was elegant and beautiful. I hope he got some joy in life. I hope he is finally at peace. I hope he knows that I know that he loved me as best as he could. Mostly- I just hope.

What a weekend. Signing off for all the Father’s Day emotional things that that day brings for me. So happy to have had these adventures with my people. #youdownwithlmb #denver #coloradosprings
I don’t have a dad. Never saw one in action as a kid. Never knew how a parent’s eyes could light up by you just walking into a room. Never understood that dads would dance hilariously to make you laugh, hug and kiss you endlessly because their love for you was so overwhelming, stay at home with you full time so that the momma could work, take you on adventures everyday, and adore every bit of you. And then, I saw LB become a dad. And it’s magic. And healing. It’s healing magic. My girl and I are so lucky. #youdownwithlmb @robrich23
