Flower headband to go with her dress.

"Gracie" bracelet made by my friend who also lost a baby boy, Owen to t-18 last year. And matching "mamma" bracelet that goes with the "Gracie" bracelet that I wear.

Hand and foot plaster impressions. So grateful for these!! I also bought this little box to keep them in and when you look inside the top window of the box, on the inside it says, "Make the most of your life."

The blueberry hat, preemie size that I found on Etsy.

My sister bought this for me. It's an angel ornament that says "I'll watch over you." The second I saw it at the store (2 days after I had her) it made me cry because I knew it was Gracie was saying she was watching over us.

I know it's not a concidence but a confirmation that God does have a purpose for Gracie's life, when my nephew Jake, who knew nothing of my previous post about Faith Hope and Love, gave this to me.

Today I finally took down the Christmas decorations. I think this is the longest I have ever kept them up. It was because I didn't want to put away the keepsakes. And once the tree was down then I would have access to the hope chest where I'm putting the keepsakes. So I thought it might help if I tooks some pictures of the keepsakes so that I could look at them and not have to get into the hope chest and bring them out. I can't count the number of wonderful things about keeping things on a blog.


  1. All beautiful keepsakes. I have the same hand and footprints on the same paper. I wanted to stop by and let you know that Gracie's butterfly is up on my site now. Click on Parade of Butterflies. xoxo

  2. I'm not bedridden, yet. I'm still working 2 days a week. Which is good for my spirit. I slowly do the butterflies as I'm laying around on my off days. Let me know if you'd like me to mail it to you. :)
