A Weekend of Anniversaries

The third week in August will always mark a weird time for me. One of the hardest days -- August 22 -- of my life followed by one of the happiest -- August 23.


August 22, 2014 marked the two year anniversary of our first loss, Baby Elsie. I can't believe its been two years. I'm still surprised by how difficult the day is for me, how sad it still makes me -- even with Nora here. I have a post about the losses and Nora's birth -- but I haven't had the emotional strength to finish it.


This year we did our best to distract ourselves -- at the Minnesota State Fair. We did have a wonderful time. We got there around 7:15 a.m. and left around noon. There was food, animals, rides, smiles, a sleeping baby, and fun.


Henry enjoyed all the food. And went on the river raft ride -- he was exactly 36" talk the exact minimum height required to go on the ride. And he ate that entire giant cotton candy!


August 23, 2014 was our 6th wedding anniversary. Our wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life and completely worth celebrating. Morgan, our children and our marriage are all that matters to me in this world.


Morgan, Nora, and I went on a day date to celebrate. A museum, a nice lunch, some shopping! It was great just to have some time with him, even though Nora and I both have colds and really didn't feel great.
