I'll be joining Swell Forever in hosting a virtual #swellremembers #lightthenight on Facebook and Instagram. Traditionally, on October 15th (National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day) at 7 pm, families light a candle for an hour across the globe to spread light in memory of their loves across the world. I will be lighting a candle and sharing on Instagram and Facebook at 7 pm and encourage others to do the same. Anyone that posts to Instagram can use #swellremembers and #lightthenightfor[name].
I'll be using the hashtag #LightTheNightForRue. Hopefully soon, I'll be able to share the meaning of the name we chose.
I rounded up several lovely options for lighting the night including eco-friendly and charitable options. However you choose to participate, lots of love to everyone who knows this heartache and carries it with them every day.
I’m a Defense Consultant with a tendency towards pulling office pranks, taking lunch breaks, and drinking Wawa shakes. I’m also an English major with a serious obsession with alliteration and rhymes. While I’m not keeping America safe, I’m priming, sanding and painting. Or increasing our fresh veg intake. Or pontificating on my newly minted status as a wife. All the while, I’m getting myself into Lucille Ball-esque scrapes and making Jim Carey-esque faces. Post-wedding, I’m bringing blogging home to explore renovations, recipes, and reflections.
