One year ago today, labor pains started around 2 in the morning. Around 6 am I woke Jed up and told him he wouldn’t be going to work today because we were having a baby. It was his 32nd birthday. Our Eleanor Pearl was born that afternoon, and now two of my loves forever share a birthday. You can read her full birth story here.  I am so thankful for their lives and their love. In Jed I have a partner who loves me unconditionally and is more to me than I could ever imagine or deserve. We will celebrate 6 years of marriage next Saturday. Our Ellie Pearl is truly a blessing, a gift, and a reward. She brings us pure joy every day and we are so thankful to be her parents.


Jed is an amazing father, loving husband, hardworking handyman, and gifted teacher. Eleanor is so sweet, snugly, feisty, and clever. She is a pure delight. The Bear and I are truly blessed to have these two in our family. Happy birthday Eleanor and Daddy Bear! We love y’all more than you will ever know.
