First birthday in heaven. Miss you baby.
I love that your day was so special, Leeanne. The cherry tree, the deer, peace. Just perfect.
Leeanne, I'm glad your picnic was peaceful and beautiful. I'm sure your Joe was there by you in spirit, and also so glad to share the peace and beauty you and your daughter found. Best wishes.
Happy Birthday Joe. warm hugs and thoughts to you Leanne. Your plan sounds wonderful. We get so many great ideas from each other by sharing... What a wonderful place we have found.. so sad to be here. But so greatful for the understanding and sharing here.
Your plans for the day sound lovely, Leeanne. You do whatever feels right for you. No rules on this.
I'm much farther out - 22 months - and I've spent each of my important event days alone so far. If it was a work day, I took it off. I just didn't want to HAVE to do anything other than what I felt like doing on that day or to feel I had to act a certain way if around others. It has worked well for me.
I do have plans for our 43rd wedding anniversary later this month. Signed up for an artsy/crafty/life-changing type workshop in Idaho. It felt like the right thing to do for myself this year.
Happy Birthday to Joe, sending hugs to you Leeanne. I don't think your celebration sounds strange at all, it sounds really nice.
Reading your post took me by surprise. I had to read who wrote it because I thought it was me and I didn't remember writing it. My husband also has been gone 11 weeks and our 18th Anniversary is also on the 20th. Sad things for us to have in common:(
