I will never forget. . .

I have been wanting to post these pictures for a while.

My sweet friend Katie, found this and sent it to me. It means so much!

Josh found this and thought it would be perfect.

I wear one of the necklaces everyday! So I can hold my sweet pea close to my heart!

My little pea's.
Right after we found out that we had a miscarriage, I told Josh I wanted something that I could hold. This little pea pod is out so I can see it everyday.

Four weeks ago we were talking about how to paint the nursery and looking at nursery furniture. Now it is an empty room that we keep the door closed to.

Four weeks ago we were so excited it was almost time for our 12 week appointment with Dr. G.

Four weeks ago we were reading "what to except when you are expecting", now we read books about dealing with loss "I'll hold you in heaven".

Four weeks ago I was talking to other Mom's to be, now I talk to mom's who have also lost there baby's.

Our trash is all over Grand Haven

Random story....So Josh and I have been spring cleaning a lot lately. Out with the old, in with the new. Our trash pick up is on Tuesday mornings so yesterday afternoon Josh and I moved everything to the end of the driveway, which was a lot of stuff a pile that was 10ft by 5ft. With in about 15 minutes people were stopping on the side of the road and going trough our trash and taking things. Then two men in a big yellow truck stopped and picked up all the metal that was our there, broken lamp, toaster oven, file cabinet, coffee table legs. The people just kept coming, two hours later the pile was down by half. This morning when I woke up at 6:00am there was almost nothing left. I guess that made it easier on the trash man!
