Well, it’s finally happened. The reality of “wow, I really DID graduate college, get married, and am at the age where MY FRIENDS ARE HAVING BABIES!!!!” has officially hit.
And oh. My. Goodness.
Be still my heart!
What an incredible blessing it is to see one of my sweetest and most precious friends announce to the world that they are going to be PARENTS!!!
I am overjoyed with happiness for Natalie & Elijah, and can not wait to meet this little bundle of joy.
Natalie is one of my most favorite-est friends from college. We met at Summer Experience, before our freshman year of college. In 2007! We were instantly friends, and stayed friends all thru college, eventually living together. We shared so many ups and downs, and I even got to travel to Colorado to shoot their wedding in December 2011. She is probably the most Godly woman I know, and her husband Elijah is incredible. They are so much fun to be around, and are always uplifting and positive.
Bless you Natalie and Elijah, I AM SO STINKIN EXCITED!!!! I’m already offering up my free babysitting skills.
Here are my favorites from a little “baby announcement” session we did a few weeks ago when the carnival came to the booming metropolis that is Maumelle. We had quite the adventure taking these…we were able to sneak onto the ferris wheel, we met the “boss hog” lady who ran the entire thing, AND she gave us free cotton candy. But we somehow couldn’t get a bag of just pink and just blue…she just wouldn’t budge. ENJOY!
