Daily Dose 6.11.23

This week took a wild turn in the most exhilarating way! Picture this: my best friend and her hubby welcomed their first bundle of joy into the world on 6/6/23, and let me tell you, this little cherub is the epitome of perfection. 


As luck would have it, I had the honor of capturing their radiant glow during their maternity photoshoot a few weeks back. But here’s the kicker—I was working at the hospital when she went into labor! Talk about being in the right place at the right time. The moment I laid eyes on my adorable nephew, I swear I nearly collapsed into a puddle of joyful tears. Cue the sentimental music, folks! Auntie Mode: Activated.


Let’s talk baby gear. I’ve been low-key hoarding baby goodies on every single one of my trips for months now, and this little nugget is in for a treat. I mean, preparation. From Nashville, he’s got his very first pair of cowboy boots, ready to wrangle some serious cuteness. And, of course, I couldn’t resist snagging an “I’m Wicked Smaht” onesie from Boston that proudly proclaims his intellect. This little nugget is joining the crew, and we’re all geared up for endless adventures, thanks to the perfect duo of high school besties, now accompanied by our newest and tiniest member.


This rollercoaster of love and laughter is just getting started. Brace yourselves for an overload of adorable updates, mischief, and unforgettable memories with this little champion of cuteness.
