One year...........

I got these gorgeous flowers delivered this weekend from Ed's sister angy.....really made my weekend....I was scared of the year coming up...on losing Ed....I think through the first year, you get through certain firsts.....almost look forward to getting through each one....so now what?? This has been at times the slowest year...and then seeming to have blinked...and only seen him a week ago....but no it's been a year since I talked to him, touched him.......and I honestly don't know how I made it....but the plan was to keep busy all weekend, and that we did took the girls away for the weekend, scrapbooked with friends...spent time with my mom....and then me and the girls got our pics done....by Robin from once upon a memory photography....she was so awesome....even though we were a little late, the weather ended up being gorgeous and it felt good being there with the girls....oh yeah and Chris....him and tonee got a couple shots together, but I think the pics are going to come out beautiful...there were leaves everywhere....it was the perfect spot....and I want to come back...and take more pics...there....some pics of sommer enjoying the pool at the holiday inn.....
some other exciting news....my group counselor...suggested that I eat a small meal..this weekend ( I know I was a little shocked by this too..) Sommer kept saying mom...maybe they're setting you up...to see if you eat?? but I kept it real small and just had a scoop of scrambled eggs...at the hotel....but I think they're just wanting to test myself...to see I can have a little without jumping off the deep end.....but tonight is weigh in....and we shall see..how that goes...
mom and sommer came down to visit the crop arean.......
and here were my croppin' partners in crime.....I actually got 10 pages done...which is alot for me!! but I tried not to scrap the week before so I think I had a creative build up.....
Will post the layouts soon..............
missing you......

I had such a nice time photographing you and your girls on Sunday. It was a gorgeous day and I can't wait for you to see them. I just have to say that I don't think it was any coincidence that the wind would blow only when we were taking shots of you... :)

I am glad that you kept busy for the weekend. You have many people around you holding you up and loving you, I can tell! I'm sure it's hard to believe that he's been away from you for a year now. I know that I can hardly believe that my dad's been gone for going on 8 months already. I miss him terribly, but I can only imagine how his absense affects my mom! It's so hard.

I proud of you though, staci. You are moving on and surviving for your girls and the rest of your family. I applaud you with the weight-loss progress too :) Keep it up!
