Our Weeping Redbud

Appropriately named Heart breaker, this weeping redbud now graces our front yard in memory of our sweet baby girl. We picked it out last weekend and planted it yesterday. Redbuds are one of the earliest to bloom and I know that I need to see some goodness as soon as I can get it come Springtime. Missing her....but remembering her more than anything. Holding her close in my heart. 

Happy Birthday, Sweetheart.

Today marks one year since our little girl passed away. I honestly have gotten through it ok, but not without some Zoloft, tons of support from family and friends and unending love from my husband. It is easy to sit here and think of everything that should be, but that doesn't change anything. Instead of giving in to our grief, we honored our daughter by planting a tree in her memory. It truly is beautiful. Strong, Straight. Small. Planted with love.

So today I say happy birthday, Sophie. You are loved more and more each day by so many people and you share your birthday with your Daddy, who is one of the strongest people on this Earth. We love you so much and think about you. every. single. day. Miss you and love you.
