One year ago today, my life was blessed with a small bundle of joy — Pepper Jo. She’s grown into an interactive, curious little girl & I have loved getting to know her over the year.
I love the way she still doesn’t quite recognize me at first, but how we quickly fall into an aunt/niece routine. I still dream of the day I can take her shopping (and maybe even a road trip or two?), just like my aunts took me on. Every day of her life reminds me of how good things can be, and how lucky we all are to be here.
So happy birthday, Pepper Jo. Love you ♥
