"Breath of Heaven"

As most of you know I have been working on a tree for the festival of trees this past year. We have been doing this tree in honor of my daughter Alexa who was delivered on October 8, 2003. I also had a friend that had a daughter still born last March so I asked her if she wanted to do it with me. I can't even tell what this experience meant to me. The tree turned out perfect- I've had a vision in my head of what I wanted it to be and it turned out even better. The experience was surreal. The people we met and the feeling on decorating day was so amazing. Everyone has a story behind their tree and they all want to share it with others who have stories of loved ones they have lost. Thank you to all of you who helped make this so perfect! Especially to my amazing mom and sister, Steph. I really couldn't have done this without them! Go and see the tree- it is on row B entitled "Breath of Heaven." Our tree was on KSL last night too!!!

Okay, seriously got chills looking at your tree. Okay, I admit it... I even got teary eyed. What a beautiful and sweet tree. Truly, a "breath of heaven". That's one of the cutest and sweetest trees I've seen there. You are so talented and darling, Brit! I'm volunteering as a hostess tomorrow at the Festival of Trees and can't wait to see it in person!

It turned out perfect! It's even more amazing in person. I almost lost it telling our kids that the tree was for Logan's older sister. Everyone that walked by it would just stop and comment on how beautiful it is. Amazing!

Britney I love your tree! My friend and I took the kids tonight and I remember seeing it. (Our girls loved any tree with little girl stuff) It was so sweet and perfect in every way. Thanks for being my friend...even though we haven't seen each other in awhile, I still feel included with you gals I love so much! I'm thinking next year maybe my sisters and I will do a tree for my Dad! Going there tonight made me realize how many people have suffered the loss of a loved one. Anyway, again loved the tree!!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!

Oh my gosh. I went to the festival last night and immediatly went over to your tree. I had no idea it was yours and I was just dying over how amazing it was. The girl standing there asked me if I wanted to read the story and I just started crying. I couldn't believe it. Good job. You are such an amazing mom!

Mike and Trina said...
