Working on my sketchbook project. Not ready to show any new pages quite yet.
So excited for it to be Friday. It's one day closer to our sonogram next week. It's one day closer to my husband's weekend. And it's one day closer to tomorrow!

Tomorrow, a fellow BLM/blogger/friend, is going with me to the town Lyra is buried. I usually end up going by myself, on some random day, just because I have to see it. To make sure the tiger is still there. There's something really important to me about her being visited. To show she's cared for - that she's not abandoned. I'm glad for this friend's willingness to go and be a part of that with me. I'd love to know that other people are visiting her too.

There's also an arts/crafts fair that will be going on in the town, so we'll go and peruse and probably run into old college friends. Maybe get some Christmas shopping done...

I think it will be a day of remembering, laughing, mourning, sharing, shopping, and eating. And I'm looking forward to it :)


  1. Hope that the sonogram goes great and that your visit to see Lyra with your friend fills you with peace. I love arts/crafts fairs :) Have fun!!!

  2. I pray that you are blessed by the trip. How special it will be to visit Lyra's grave with a friend.

  3. I can't wait for your sonogram! :-)
    And if I'm ever in town, I'd love to visit Lyra with you. xo

  4. I'm really looking forward to it too:) And still feel honored you invited me to visit Lyra.
    Also super excited for your sonogram coming up!!!

  5. Your sonogram!?! Yeeps. Holy cow. Also wish I were close enough to visit Lyra with you. Maybe one day...

  6. This makes me wish even more I was able to get back this weekend. I can see in my head right where Lyra's grave sits. If I ever make it back, I plan to stop by and say hi to her.

  7. Can't wait to hear about your sonogram! I hope you have a good trip tomorrow.

  8. have a great day curls how lovely to have a friend come with you to visit your sweet lyra xxx

  9. Have a great time with your friend. Having some with you who gets it makes all the difference in the world, yes? Sounds like a nice day you've got planned :)

    Looking forward to hearing about the sono!

  10. Time always seems to drag when you are looking forward to big events.
    Hope that you have a peaceful visit to Lyra's grave with your friend and I hope that your sonogram comes quickly and is perfect.
