Lilacs

It's hard to be sad when spring is so beautiful. I'm doing much better. I only feel heavy and sad when I look at Max's photo, but I think it helps me to look and move on.

I had a really wonderful weekend visiting my family. We tried on wedding dresses, ate chicken, watched/played rugby. It was really good to see them again. I hadn't been home since Christmas! I was so caught up in how beautiful Pittsburgh is in the springtime that I forgot how beautiful Lebanon can be in the same season.

For the first time in 24 years, my parents' lilac bush bloomed. A neighbor planted a bush across the street and now our lilac grew flowers. I guess our bush just needed a boyfriend to make lilac babies. It was so beautiful and smelled amazing. I'm very jealous of my mother and her productive lilac bush. When I get a house with a yard, I'll have to take a piece of their bush to grow.

Max's mom is planting lilacs in a memorial Max garden in the back yard. Hopefully, future generations of doggies will enjoy sniffing those flowers and circling around and around and around them, looking for the perfect spot on which to pee. I think Max would like that.

I'm so sorry about Max. That is just so tragic.

Did you have fun trying on the dresses? How exciting for you!

Pittsburgh is really beautiful in the springtime--I miss it a lot this time of year.

I just read this...how amazing that you all picked lilacs for remembering Max! My colleagues here at work brought me cut lilacs the day after Max was killed and then a beautiful lilac bush for planting in a Max Memorial Garden. So now Katy you will have memorial gardens to visit in Lebanon and Montclair.
In the meantime poor Max's ashes have yet to be returned to us...
