Have a calm weekend

Happy Friday, friends! Are you doing anything fun this weekend? It's been a sad week for my family. My grandfather died last night at the age of 96. It's been a hard day, to say the least. My mom has been in Alabama all week, and I'm glad she was able to be with him and be a source of comfort to him in the end. He lived a full and vibrant life and was the type of person you couldn't help but admire. I miss you already, Gramps! Make sure you hug your loved ones extra tight the next time you see them. I hope you all have a great weekend, and here are my favorite finds from the wonderful Web...
Isn't this waterfall braid pretty?
