this weekend was meaningful celebration in more ways than one. today we celebrated my sweet nephew’s first birthday. the giggles, the presents, the clapping, the singing, the cake-eating activity (he killed it!) — it was all amazing. but in the midst of the excitement and festivity, i couldn’t help but reflect how much he means to me and how special it is to have him in my life. he’s not just a nephew, he’s been a symbol of hope for me. he was conceived via fertility treatments and serves as a beautiful reminder that this long journey is and will be worth it in the end.
happy birthday my sweet little nephew — you have changed my life more than you know.
