Heartbroken

What looked like this...


... now looks like this.

I heard the gut-wrenching crash, ran into the kitchen and just started screaming. My Orla Kiely mugs, my Anthropologie bowls and cups, a couple wedding presents... gone. Just like that, they're gone.

I know they're just things, but they were my things. They were things I've picked added to the house during our marriage. Things that meant something to me. My husband held me in his arms and I had a little cry. Then with his and my sister's help, I cleaned them up.

Now, I'm just numb. A couple things survived but I can't bear to look at them. But they're just things, right?

Thanks guys. The shelf just wasn't able to take the weight of everything and just came loose :( The hubs is no longer allowed to install shelves heh... It stinks, but it happened and I'm over it. I'm just thankful neither of the cats were hurt by the glass shards!

you are allowed to be heartbroken and sad and cry a bit.. yes it is only things.. but when things are gifts or have a history they become a part of us.. and you will be ok.. but you are allowd to be sad for a bit. its only human.

That really stinks! I'm sorry to hear that. I would be balling to, especially when some were wedding presents. I guess a good way looking at it is some of it can be replaced... like the Anthropologie bowls.
