And Here's Another One For Good Measure

Not in Halloween costumes, but taken on Halloween, at her favorite time of day.

Her little face is just so beautiful.  And these images are just so precious.  Sadly, they are much more precious than they should ever, ever be. 


  1. Thank you, Mandy. Your girl is a treasure - in her costumes or in her birthday suit. I love seeing photos of her. Thanks for sharing them with us.


  2. Mandy, Hudson is just so adorable. And precious. And in the tubby! So sweet! Hang on, Mandy, brighter days are on the horizon. I'm so sorry it hurts so much, and I know that it does.

  3. Mandy, Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures...what an awesome little girl you have. You are my new friend and you have brought joy and peace to me in my healing process. I hope to do the same for you somehow. Joe died just after his 29th birthday, and our loss continues to be tremendous. You have reminded me of the blessing of those 29 years...he came home one day from high school, frantically telling me that I had to teach him how to shag before the prom. At his wedding, when the DJ played Jimmy Buffet, we shagged again. The precious memory of his huge dimpled grin and the words, "I've got a little girl" will never leave me. Thank you for helping me heal. I am so sorry that you and Hudson did not get to make those memories, but you have your own. Hold them close and one day, I promise, they will be salve for your broken heart.
    I am in Asheville and I read where you have friends here. I would love to meet you and buy you a cup of coffee at my favorite spot in Grove Arcade. Please be good to yourself - do you know there is something called "prenatal hot stone massage"?

    Love, Helen
