It’s not what we have in our life, but who we have in our life that matters. – J.M. Laurence
I wish I could put into words how much this family means to me. We’ve known each other long before our children came around, but became closer in the past few years. Their sweet girls, Stella & Lucy, and my daughters are the dearest of friends. I’ve never seen four little girls so close in age play so well together. Our husbands have bonded over being girl dads and all of the ways they have to play according to their daughters’ instructions. Their family is a treasure to mine and it was my honor to take their maternity portraits for the newest little lady about to enter their family.
Let me brag a little bit about the matriarch & one of my dearest friends. Monica was a stronghold for me during our miscarriage earlier this year. As someone who has walked that path before me, you can only imagine what a comfort it was to have her alongside me. She was not afraid to reach out even though she was pregnant at the time with this little nugget. Sometimes you need your friends to listen, give advice or just be there in the dark days. She did all of those things and I can’t imagine my life without her. I’m so glad that our motherhood paths crossed when they did. I know exactly who orchestrated that & I’m so grateful that He was looking out for both of us.
I can’t wait to meet the youngest Ditmer next month (or maybe even later this month)!
