It's something that I'm happy to talk about because while sharing Savannah's life, I am hopefully helping to ensure that no one else has to experience what I went through after losing my daughter. While I realize no one knows the "right" thing to say, there is a long list of things that while well-meaninged, are very hurtful. The speech was a success and more and more people have let Savannah into their hearts.
Afterwards, my Mom and I headed to the Olive Garden for lunch and a much needed drink.
And here is my "Mommy of the Year" picture!
In case you are wondering or going to be visiting the Olive Garden in the near future, the drink special is called Toasted Marshmellow Amore and is the closest thing to a grown up alcoholic chocolate milk. It's so yummy I found the recipe and have been making them at home.
