Chelsea's Garden

What a beautiful Memorial Day. We had a family breakfast at Grandma & Grandpa's, then we all made our way to the cemetery. My youngest little niece who was born 1 month after Chelsea's accident, who is now 2 yrs old said the cutest thing. She said, "I put flowers on Chelsea's garden." My heart melted, I thought that was the cutest thing, so that is what we are calling it now, Chelsea's garden! There were many beautiful flowers, butterflies, and tokens of remembrance. It is so nice to be surrounded by so many who love her...still.
With Chelsea being the oldest grandchild, she has 19 younger cousins. It is neat to Rich and I how much they seem to know her and talk about her so often. I am grateful for that and hope they never forget her. Family is such a blessing. I feel so blessed to have married into such an amazing one :)

I love that! Chelsea's Garden! It looks beautiful! There is nothing better than being there with family to share memories and thoughts, is there? So glad it was such a beautiful day! I love the wreath idea....I'll have to steal that one! I hate buying mums.....they seem so....ordinary!

Out of the mouths of babes come the sweetest, most comforting thoughts... they truly are so close to the other side. What a beautiful garden for a beautiful girl!
