Jour•ney passage or progress from one stage to another

My friendship with Samantha spans the years now and in this stretch of time, I’ve had the privilege to witness her journey. She is wholeheartedly dedication to her work and is an amazing wife to the coolest dude I know. The connection and love they share is unmatched, and I aspire to have the same one day.

But, no greater joy comes from the milestone of motherhood! I’m beyond excited to be the auntie to not one but TWO amazing individuals. 



I wish her abundant blessings and prosperity. “It takes a village to raise a child”, as they say, and I’m officially volunteering to be a part of the village...

...with the “I love my auntie” onesies and all.
