So I found something out today. I thought that since Spring for SIDS is in April that April was SIDS awareness month... I was wrong. SIDS awareness month is the month Macie was born...October. Here is the picture I found today:
So since we are on the topic of October let me tell you my 'tentative' idea for Macie's birthday. A balloon release. At 3:01pm on October 6, 2011 Macie will be exactly 1 year old. To honor her memory I would like everyone to pause for a moment of silence, say a prayer and release a balloon into the sky for her. While I know not everyone will be with us you can do this from anywhere. I love the idea (obviously!), but I'm trying to come up with the perfect way to remember her by and to honor her birthday. This is what I have so far, but I still have 3 1/2 months so who knows what I will come up with by then! What do you guys think?
Below is another photo I came across today. I think I'm going to get it printed onto a t-shirt or tank top or something to wear around:
Today is June 23rd which means my little brother, Brett, and his amazing fiancee, Molly, will be married one month from today! I'm looking forward to this and I can't wait! Below is a picture of them. Aren't they cute! I loved all of their engagement pictures! I am so happy that they found each other. =)
Their wedding day will mark the 1 year anniversary since I have talked to Jenny. She passed away July 25, 2010 and we talked for a very long time that Friday night July 23, 2010...seems crazy it has been almost a year since I have heard her voice, had one of our multiple times a day talks, or heard one of her funny jokes or stories!
