Samuel turns 1!

Exactly 1 year ago, our greatest little treasure and joy came into this world! I have to take a moment to share that day bc it was an amazing experience for me. I love birth. It can change our lives if we let it. Samuel's was the hardest physical feat I have ever been through. Intense. And divine. I am forever grateful to Philip, our midwives Jeanne and Joanna, and my sister, Candace for their love and support that day...and my Mom on FaceTime 😉. That day changed my life and has taken me pretty much a whole year to process. Recovery was hard, those early days were hard. But man, I barely remember the struggle when my boy smiles at me.

It's been the coolest, most challenging, beautiful, experience of my life becoming a Mother. 
Samuel Jonathan Day, you are indeed our greatest adventure and joy. Your smile and your joy are contagious. We can't go out without someone stopping us to say how handsome you are, how gorgeous your eyes are, or how smiley you are. You have taught us how to be free and unashamed. Thank you my sweet boy. We love you more than you'll ever know, but here's to a whole life-time of showing you 💛
