1 year

I can't believe its already been a year since Dan left us. I miss him so much. Yesterday the 19th was the 1 year mark. We actually had a pretty great day. We went down to Murray for the IHH 5k with a bunch of our family and friends. (I just sat and watched because I'm 35 weeks pregnant) Tyler took 3rd overall. He did awesome. We hung out at Murray City Park for a bit, the weather was great. We also ate lunch there and it was really nice to just sit and relax. Everyone that ran or walked the 5k did great. I am really proud of everyone that came out to support us yesterday. It makes the moments much easier when we are doing something positive it remembrance of Dan. Surrounding myself with uplifting people makes it easier too. I am really happy we had so many friends and family come out to support IHH, the organization that helps other families affected by CHD's and angel families. After the 5k we headed home to watch the Chelsea vs Bayern Munich soccer game. (Tyler's favorite EPL team is Chelsea FC.) They WON! So it was a really fun game to watch, and another great distraction. After that Tyler and I took some pretty orange roses to Dan's grave. Tyler trimmed the grass around the edges of the headstone and it looks really nice. After the visit at the cemetery we headed home and then had a BBQ with some friends. Like I said, it was a great day. I miss my sweet boy so much but I know I will se him again someday. I hope he can see that Tyler and I are doing well, and that we smile whenever we think of him.

Proud of my hubby taking 3rd overall! I designed those  "Miracle Dan" pins that Tyler is pointing at on his shirt.  I ordered them online and everyone got to wear one when they were running. :)
