My "fame" moment {DFW Photographers}

This past Saturday was the 1 year anniversary of my husband's passing. I had planned a balloon release and scattering a few of his ashes to commemorate the occasion with our granddaughter. My good friend Amber Augustin (Extreme Home Makeover Family) was approached by the producers of that show about their new upcoming show (don't know if I can name it so I won't). Anyway, they asked her if she knew of anyone who had lost a loved one in the last year so she gave them my name and told them this weekend was the one year. They were in town filming a few different people for possible storylines and they picked me for one. It was an interesting, but difficult/emotional experience. They really know how to get you to let it all out!

Anyway, the ceremony at the park with Gigi was beautiful and very touching. Amber graciously donated her time to photograph it/us and we even managed to ignore the filming of it. I'm sure bystanders in the park were wondering why this family was having this big production! I will keep you updated if I get on the show...not really sure if I want to do it or not. It's going to be an uplifting, inspirational show so I definitely will be watching it however my moment of "fame" works out.
