Two years, huh? I just went back and re-read my post from this day last year, and I feel the same way now that I did then. On one hand, I feel like it just happened and on the other hand it feels so long ago.
Overall, this year was a good year. I just wish I could have shared it with my mom. The biggest event of course was getting engaged to Andrew, and I can’t wait to get married in September. Having watched endless episodes of Say Yes To The Dress with my mom, it’s weird to be doing it all without her.
Everyone who knew my mom knows what a loss it is not to have her in their life anymore. Still, even as I miss her and think of her every day, I remind myself that I am lucky. After watching my friends once again join together and step into action this week, I know there are so many great people in my life. I have a wonderful dad, brother, and family, family friends and friends who are like family, and Andrew who will soon be family.
If this post rambles, it’s because after two years I still don’t know how to talk about it. But the most important thing to me is that I keep reminders of my mom in my life, and reading and blogging here is just one small way I do that. Thank you all for following along and thinking of my mom often as well. It’s nice to know she won’t be forgotten.
