Happy Fourth... here's looking to next year!

On this Independence day, I've been doing a lot of thinking. Thinking about last year and the year to come. I don't think I was sick last year. If I was infected, I wasn't showing any symptoms. We went to 4th on Broadway last year and met up with Angie, Eddie, and the kids. Afterwards we went to Cotton Patch. Then we came back to our house where Matt & Eddie cleaned out the pool while the rest of us hung out.

I was pregnant then. Though the baby was already gone.:-( I was almost 12 weeks and when I had my m/c the baby only measured 8 weeks. I started miscarrying the night of July 5th.

Next year I'm hopeful that my string of bad luck will be gone. It seems crazy that in one year I tragically lost my dog, had a miscarriage, and contracted Lyme Disease. Maybe the Lyme made me miscarry? I don't know..

Anyway, here is looking to next year. I'm confident things will be so much better then.

Later tonight we are going to go see the firework show. I'm super excited about that. Holden is going to love it!!!

I promise my next entry on this blog won't be depressing lol.. I will post pictures of our time tonight.

A big hug for you, Lauren. I do not know much about Lyme disease, but who knows, it may have made you miscarry.
