"Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose." -Kevin Arnold
My best friend since the third grade had her first baby last weekend. McKinlee Renee Coffelt. She is the sweetest, prettiest looking baby girl and I cannot wait to meet her! Jillian was in labor 30 hours (yeah, more than a whole day!!!) and then opted to have a C-section last minute. She is so brave and strong!! I was able to talk to her briefly while she was still in the hospital and I am just so impressed with her calmness. Jillian is the type of person who has everything planned out to the T. I am so proud of her for keeping her cool when things didn't go quite as planned. Her strength and peace is inspiring!
It is hard to believe that someone I knew as a wee child now has one of her own! This photo was taken on my 21st birthday before a night out in Sacramento. Almost 9 years ago!! Insane! Speaking of being brave and strong, my mom told me that she had all of us kids without an epidural or any other medication! It is hard to imagine going through something like that without pain medication because I am the biggest wimp in the world as you all know. But, really?! Three babies, all natural?! I can't even wrap my head around that. Like I said, my mom is awesome.
