On Friday, October 14th we headed toward Madison, WI from my cousin Kate’s house so that I could meet up with Melissa and Alissa. They are fellow BLMs that I have gotten to know on my own journey through loss. We met up at a Panera Bread there and had a nice time chatting while we ate. We only got to spend about 30 minutes with them until it was time for us to leave so that we could stay on schedule. Before we left Melissa gave me my shirt that I got from the Forever In Our Hearts Remembrance Walk they held in that area. The shirt is really pretty and it has the names of my Heavenly babies on the back. How wonderful!
After Madison, we headed to Tomah, WI so that I could meet up with Deanna at Subway in the Walmart there. She’s another fellow BLM. She had her mom and her little guy, Asher, with her. He and Kyndra had fun riding the little truck ride nearby. (Thanks Deanna!)
Once we arrived in Red Wing, we headed straight for the dinner that was being hosted at a local church. Kyndra really loved the big hall and I think she thought it was her own stage as she was singing and dancing all over. A photography club was there taking pictures and video of the dinner. It was nice to meet a few more BLMs that I only knew from online, like Kristie and Heather.
While we were there Heather interviewed me on video. I was a little nervous but I think I did ok.
