gift for the green beans

Look at what I got in the mail today!

My Blogger buddy, Ann Marie, and Sarah Warden (the maker of these cool hand painted tiles) sent this to me! I love anything that reminds me of my Beans. This is especially cool because I love the colors and it's totally unique! It made my day when I came across this as I was sorting through the mail.

I found the perfect place to put the tile. It's on the hall table right by my front door for my guests and us to see every time we walk by.

Thank you Ann Marie and Sarah! I love it!

  7. Lauren ~ It's beautiful, what a special gift. Those babies will always be in your heart, but it's so cool to get to remember them and keep them as part of your home too for others to share in.

    You are so strong and I think about you so often. I can't imagine what you went through and are still going through, just know that you have people that are always here for you - not just when you were pregnant but after too.

    Lily, Heidi, Rylan & Paige will always be a part of you even though they aren't with you right now.

  10. That is a beautiful reminder of your Beans! LOVE IT!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
