Baby Shower

Hey Friends,

A year ago this Sunday was my baby shower hosted by Jenny and Crystal. Jenny never made it to my baby shower obviously, but I still have the invitation she designed on the side of my refrigerator and I frequently look at it and think back to all of our conversations about Macie and the baby shower. I can still hear her voice in my head and I remember the excitement in her voice over her idea of having everyone bring a book for Macie and writing a note on the inside cover (best idea ever for anyone planning a baby shower, fyi). A few times I have sat down and read through the front cover of all of her books to see what people wrote to her and sometimes I just look at the books to see what books people chose for her. Even though she was so little I still read to her a lot. My favorite book to read to her has a saying that means more to me now than ever, “Forever and Always my Baby you’ll be.” Oh I miss my sweet baby girl and I can’t wait for the day that we are reunited in Heaven. Knowing that someday I will get to see her again is the only thing that really keeps me going to be honest. Without that belief I don’t know how I would make it through or wake up every day.

We have a pretty relaxed weekend planned which will be nice because next weekend will be busy and great with the 1st Annual Macie Elizabeth Golf Tournament ( I cannot wait for next Saturday! I’m so excited I’m like a kid in a candy store! Seeing everyone come out to show their support for our beautiful daughter will most likely bring tears to my eyes more than one time throughout the day (forewarning!). It’ll be such a great event!!!

I hope you all have a great weekend!
