Once you leave high school, life seems to zoom past you quickly. You and your friends go in all different directions with school, work, finding love and starting families. And it really is beautiful to witness your friends become the best versions of themselves.
Just last year, I stood next to my pal as she vowed to love and laugh every day with her now hubby. And fast forward to now, twelve quick months later, we are photographing the baby bump she has been growing!
I’ll never forget one night when we grabbed a bite to eat and caught up with one another to talk about married life now that she has been a wife for a few months! We talked about her wanting to be a mama and how she hoped one day soon, the dream would become a reality.
But something was different about her. I told my mama, there was a gut feeling I had after visiting with her that evening, that I felt like maybe that dream might come true a little sooner than she thought! (Mama’s intuition!)
And right I was! We ran into each other at Target where she told me the news and I was so happy for her because the adventure she was about to embark on – would be so memorable and meaningful. There’s nothing in this life I love more than being a mama and wife.
Mary – I can’t wait to meet baby Grady. I can’t wait to watch you be a mama and enjoy those snuggles, smiles and baby coo’s. We love him already!!
