I Will Carry You

I have been waiting for this book by Angie Smith to come out for months- and I mean like counting down the days. I have followed her blog since last June shortly after we lost Nolan. She started her blog when she found out her sweet baby Audrey was not going to survive here on earth when she was born. She shares her love, hopes and grief over the few months Audrey was still nestled safely in her belly. Then the raw feelings of grief followed after precious Audrey was born.

She inspires me. She has turned Audrey’s story into a book. It’s heartbreaking, inspirational and a raw insight of what losing a child is like. But is is sharing a life with the world, something I would love to have the chance to do.

So today, I took my book, my new anchor towel from my best friend Jen and my pool floats and spent the whole day at the pool reading. I am half way done and the only reason I stopped was because the Florida sun was frying me. I look forward to finishing it this week.

I've been waiting for that book to come out, too! I'll look forward to hearing more from you about how it is.

And I'm really jealous of how tan you look in those pics, BTW! I'm in MN, where we are all still pasty white.

I'm glad your getting good use out of your towel :-) And what about you? I could see a book by you on the shelf "Blogging my way through grief" or something of the such... It would totally sell! Think about it! I think I need to join you at the pool one of these days.

I know your post is about the book, but I'm stuck on that fabulous setting. Wow. We should all live in Florida :)

I'm with Tammy. I was just coming to comment about your IPhone even being in the area of the pool :)

That and I want to read the book too. I'm going to buy a copy.
