High Five for Friday!

The beginning of this week was pretty stressful for me at work. I've been feeling a little overwhelmed, but after Wednesday I got caught up. Thank goodness! Then, after my dream about Layla, I can't get her off my mind. I must just be going though another part of the 'process'. Eight months. I remember it like it was yesterday. The pain is still there. It's not a sharp pain. More of an ache and a yearning for those memories. She is in every one of my thoughts. Literally, always on my mind. No matter what I'm doing.

Let's just say, I'm glad it's Friday! I'm doing a wedding tomorrow for a co-worker/friend. Kylie is spending the day at my Aunt & Uncle's lake house with my sister's family. Crimson's coming on Sunday after church and I'm taking Monday off. We can't wait!

Here are my top 5!

1. Kylie and I went for a run on Saturday after her nap. We didn't realize it was so hot! After 25 min, we were just about home and saw the ice cream truck! Best. Reward. Ever.

2. I had to work on Tuesday, but Bryan sent me this pic as she was leaving for Milwaukee with Uncle Adam & Staci. It sounds like they had a great time. Bryan & I are grateful that Kylie is so flexible. I don't think she missed us at all.

3. We picked her up in Sheboygan. On the way home, we stopped for gas just before a terrible storm came through. We hung out in the car and waited for the storm to pass. It was fun to hear all about her trip while we watched the lightning. Another great family memory to put in the books.

4. Cookies from the hospital for breakfast on Thursday! (We got a cookie at all of Layla's appointments.)

5. My grandparent's were in Green Bay and stopped to visit last night. Before they came, Kylie wanted to put on a pretty dress & have her hair in a braid. Here, they're saying good-bye. I was so happy with Kylie. She was very sweet, cuddly, quiet and gentle. I love observing my grandparents. You can see that they cherish every moment. I want to be like that.

Happy Friday, everyone! If I could add another pic, it would be of my shirt today. It's raining & gloomy so I'm wearing a comfy long sleeve cream/navy blue striped shirt. So cozy. Enjoy your weekend!

I love your sweet litte girl. I was driving in that same storm from Milwaukee to Green Bay. I pulled off the road twice to wait out the worst of the storms. Awful, weren't they?

Love the picture of your gramma with your little one- so precious. Blessings, Diana

ps. I noticed Bryan was back at work today- that is a good thing-
