Going for a Walk

Today was the Walk to Remember here in Edmonton. It was a beautiful sunny day, the best you could possibly wish for in October in northern AB. I was so happy to see that they had invited Kate Inglis back to speak again. (I just found her amazing words from last year in the Stirrup Queens Creme de la Creme of 2009 list a few days ago.) I even worked up to the courage to walk up to her and say thank you for Glow In the Woods. Is it okay to be a DBM blogger groupie because if it is I will be her groupie. She was very kind and didn't freak out when I walked up to her and started crying before I could even get the words "Thank you" out of my mouth. Overall it was a good day and it felt good to be able to include D in an event for Reid.

Here are some pictures from today:

The note I wrote to Reid

The sidewalk of names

The name we were looking for

Our balloons on their way

Tomorrow, which starts in 87 minutes, will not be such a good day. Many times today I thought "6 months ago, I was ... so happy, so pregnant, so clueless, so not the way I am now."

Looks like a beautiful event and glad you were able to experience it with your family. I like the idea of the letter on the line. Can I ask what became of them afterwards? I want to do something eco-friendly. I don't know what's worse Saturday or the 3rd of the month. Right now I think it's Saturday.

Six months.

Such a beautiful remembrance walk.

Much love to you.

I'm not sure if it is okay to be a DBM blogger groupie but if it is, I will join you in being Kate's!

The walk looks beautiful, the sidewalk lovely but far, far too many names.

Thinking of you and Reid today. xo

That sounds so amazing... I am dying to go on a walk here in town, but I will be 2 hours away that day... I am trying to finagle a way to still make it. : )
