I live in Washington, DC with 1 cat named Pixel, 6 cameras, 3 computers, 158 movies, 286 books, and 1 bowling pin. I own the Design Foundry and pretend to be a graphic designer by day.

  1. sigh. Yes. I have heard this and experienced it too. You want to pick up the phone and call when you see something that reminds you of them and then you realize you can’t. It’s heartbreaking.
    One of my friends says that she tries to envision moments like these as a way for her loved one to say hello. She said she was in the produce aisle and almost broke down by the eggplant, as her and her mom made eggplant together. It helps for her to let the eggplant be a small symbol of her mom living on, in a way. I haven’t tried this yet but whatever brings comfort is worthwhile.
