The start of this week has not been an easy or joyful one for our little family. The 28th of March has become a hard day for us since 2006 when my only brother, almost 3 years younger than me, passed away from a sudden and massive heart-attack. I wish I could put into words what a special person my brother Ashley was, caring, fun-loving, hard working, thoughtful and with an epic sense of humour.
I could be in another room from him, have no idea what he was reading/watching but he would start laughing… and laughing… and then, just by the sheer joy in his laughter… I would start laughing too. I have such a clear memory of this that it makes me smile every time… and miss him even more. Our son Aaron has that same laugh, and, in so many ways, is very much like Ash.. I just wish Ash could have seen how spectacularly his niece and nephew are growing up, he would be so proud.
In honour of my beautiful brother, and because I am someone who looks at the glass half full, I designed these Joyful Photo Masks to celebrate life, love and family.
