Happy Birthday Lily!

Lily's birthday was yesterday and she would have been nine years old.  Sigh.  When she died we decided to have her buried in Utah seeing as we knew we would always have family there and we didn't know how long we would stay in AZ.  The crappy part of that is the fact on days like her birthday and the anniversary of her death, or any other day for that matter, we can't just pop by and be with her.

Luckily I have amazing family.  Lots of thanks to Emma and her family for remembering our Lily by placing some flowers and the perfect strawberry balloon on her grave.  Happy birthday sweet girl!

"I Was Running"

Remember Forrest Gump?  Remember that scene where Jenny tells him to, "Run, Forrest.  Run!" and he takes off and his leg braces fall off and he was super speedy!  Yeah, that was me this morning.  Ok, well, not really, but I did get new running shoes on Saturday and I used them for the first time this morning and I felt fast.  I'm running a half-marathon in June up in Utah and you can follow my progress, along with others running with me, HERE.

Run, MB!  Run!
