Last Saturday was my 28th birthday. The past couple of years, birthdays have been a little bit hard for me because the due date of the baby that I lost was just two days after my b-day. This year was better. Yes, I know that she would have been two last Monday, but I've also found the peace to understand that this happened for a reason. I can't even for a minute imagine my life without Eli in it, or without my wonderful friends that have become a part of my daily life because our shared tragedy- so now, two years later, I feel blessed. I know that life is as it should be. The Big Guy upstairs is calling the shots and it's clear that His wisdom is one that I should submit to.
So enough of the waa-waa talk- on to the fun things!
Friday night, my mom and dad came down and we went to Maggianos for my birthday dinner. We had a great meal and enjoyed spending the evening together. My dad fell in LOVE with Maggiano's lasagna and I'm not sure that he's stopped talking about it--- a week later. :)
Then- Saturday morning, we took off for Brown County with the SarTodd. We stayed at the Lodge this time and spent a good portion of the day playing in the water park again. Owen started going down that big slide all by himself!! Who gave him permission to get so big all of the sudden? It certainly wasn't me!
We had dinner at the yummy little pizza place and then went for Ice Cream at Miller's- which is possibly the best ice cream on the face of the earth, ever! I had my first waffle cone at Todd's suggestion and it was amazing!
Sunday, we walked around Nashville and had a great time scoping out all of the stores with adorable handmade baby things. We may or may not have been stealing some ideas for little Miss Walroth!
It was such a fun weekend. I am so thankful to have such wonderful friends and family!! I feel lucky everyday to have them in my life!
Now we're counting down the days to the Florida trip with SarTodd and Mom and Dad! Everything has finally come together (A huge thank-you to Miss Megan!), and I can't wait to have some adult vacation time with my best friends! T-9 days!! WOOT WOOT!! I also get to meet up with my wonderful Megan while we're there! It's going to be so great to finally "meet" such a fantastic person and friend!
