As an extra special treat, another lovely friend, Katie of Katie Res Photography, came and did an awesome newborn photoshoot for us.
This post is picture-heavy.
We were asked by a friend of our birth photographer if we were interested in sharing our story in a magazine. Kimberly Whitaker-Enderle, owner and editor of Peekaboo magazine in Northwest Arkansas messaged me and told me about the February birthday issue. I thought it sounded awesome to be able to share our story to even more people, so I started writing. Of course the writing brought the emotions and tears. It was so lovely to be able to share both my happiness and heartache to anyone who was interested to read. You can read the full story that was published here.
Along with my own story, I got to read and share the stories of not only Joel and Shannon, but also Joel’s best friend, Thomas. They all wrote a special little story and letter to me and I will always hold these words so near and dear to my heart. Since they had to be shortened for the article, I wanted to share them in their entirety here so I have them to look back on any time…
