Gracie's 1st Starbucks

Today Gracie has her 1st trip to Starbucks.
Before you panic... she only got a cookie.
I think her cookie was almost as big as she is.

After talking to a friend who mentioned Starbucks...
I just had to have it.
So at around 10pm we journeyed out to find one.

I got a Grande Caramel Frapp,
half coffee, half cream base,
with extra caramel sauce, AND whipped cream.

October 15th

Today is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.
Every year I work hard through my organization I Am A Mother To An Angel
to spread a lot of awareness on all forms of loss whether it be pregnancy, infant, or child loss.
I also try to do special things for other grieving mothers to remember their angels.

This year the day has a double meaning, because on this day last year things changed.
Today is also the 1 year Anniversary of my niece Scarlette's death, her 1st Angelversary.

 Last year as I prepared for October 15th for months in advance I could have never dreamed that I'd be losing my precious niece on that day. She was born on September 16th just 2 days before my 23rd birthday and she came on September 18th on my birthday. Her death was rules as SIDS with no known cause. She died at just 1 day shy of 1 month old. I loved her and cared for her as much as my own children... so when she died a big part of me died too.

This October I've given away over 500 keepsake items at I Am A Mother To An Angel as a way to do something in honor of her and also of the day of awareness. I was also able to get SIDS Awareness wristbands made that say "In memory of Scarlette" on the inside.

 Some days things seem so surreal.

I had a goal of reaching 15,000 fans by October 15th.
October 15th will be Scarlette's 1st Angelversary
and of course it is also Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day.
I'm happy to announce that we hit 15,000 "likes" before midnight today.
Next stop 20,000, maybe by Christmas? :)
