Lay Me Down With These

Four months ago, we lost our sweet identical twin baby girls.
It has been and continues to be the hardest thing Seth and I have ever had to go through.
There are really no words to describe how much it has changed our lives.
In honor of our sweethearts, I have a few items I would like to share.
First, this necklace...
Legacy Emmanuel Hospital gave me this.
I have the outside parts of the hearts while Jilinda and Alayna have the inside part of the heart.
At first, I wore this every day.
It is my connection to the girls.
Eventually, I realized I couldn't keep wearing it without ruining it, so I put it in an envelope to protect it.
I want to publicly thank Legacy for their amazing care and support.
Second, I want to share this bracelet...

My kind friend, Kristen, quickly put together two tiny bracelets for the girls right before we left to bury them in Casper.
They are beautiful.
She came over with this for me yesterday, and she couldn't have timed it better.
The bracelet matches the girls' bracelets, but the pearls on theirs are lavender instead of white and they don't have letters.
I think the bracelet is gorgeous.

It even has two hearts on the end where it ties.
Where I couldn't wear the necklace daily, I will be able to wear this.
(Perhaps not yet, though, as I'm afraid of losing it in the move)
Thank you, Kristen!!
I love that I am blessed with the opportunity to match my sweethearts when I am put in the ground.
