Finding our Smile again...

The last couple of weeks has been such a blur- just trying to keep life moving in it's general direction and maintaining our still pretty crazy schedules.

We have good days and not so good days.... all still veiled in sadness. Everyday though- we are getting stronger- the tears flow less frequently- although still randomly- and at so many different things. I was driving home last night- and thought- oh- I should call mom and tell her..... oh wait, I can't....

In my funk- I haven't really felt like taking or dealing with photos.. but know that I need to get back up on the horse, so to speak. I did manage to snap some random shots while I was home- my pretty girls playing in the abundant snow, my parents animals whom we all just love, and just the beauty that is home in Central Idaho.

Even at my most sad- I have to remember to see the humor and beauty in the little things in our everyday and try to capture it... so I leave you today with photos from home... all are pretty self explanatory-

.......except this first one- and all I can say- is that Dan the horse absolutely LOVES Oni- he followed her around all week- if she was outside and in the pasture sledding- he was there. Pretty cute. He even pushed Gabbi down the sledding hill with his nose!

Find your smile today- and hug your dear ones. xoxo Didi

Just gorgeous Di. I find myself always wanting to call my mom, especially if things aren't going so well between Chris and I. I still have her phone number on my cell phone under "mom". I refuse to delete it. Her 2 year anniversary is coming up on the 23rd. Please know that you have seriously been in my thoughts EVERY day, because I know what you are going through. I really do. I wasn't as close to my mom as you two were, but it doesn't change the fact that she was still my mom, and I still loved her and I still miss her.
Just keep on keepin' on, and eventually it won't hurt as much. Know that you are loved down here in Cali, and we hope to see our Washington clan, including you guys, this summer. (we are REALLY going to try!)
your friend,
