Well, shoot. I had a really long post written out and then I lost the post and it's late, so you're getting the cliffnotes version now, hahaha.
Long story short.... I have a habit of not keeping things.
I'm minimalist. And most of the time, that really simplifies my life and makes it fuller.
But sometimes, I sell things I shouldn't have. One of those times was when I sold my first woven wrap, which I didn't realize held sentimental value for me until months later.
Fast forward a couple years, I see a woman wearing a carrier made out of that VERY wrap (It's a Didymos Lisca WCMT, in case you're wondering) in the PX here in Hawaii. Same weave and same color! It's not something I see often. So, I take to Facebook to track her down because I'd like to photograph her family. MONTHS later, I find her, and find out she's ALSO a photographer! And that she's pregnant!
Soooo, we clicked and she ends up being one of the sweetest people I've ever met and I have the honor of photographing her birth. (She's the INCREDIBLE BEAUTIFUL MOM TO JACOB, seen here!)
Today, she messages me and asks if she can drop off a thank you gift she got me. Like, oh my gosh. Photographing her birth was a gift in itself! I was so privileged to be there.
So, I open up the gift bag, and among some other thoughtful items, is THIS.
The wrap I'm in love with in a DOLL CARRIER FOR MY GIRLS. I cried, you guys. It's probably the most thoughtful gift I've ever received. The carrier that held SO much sentimental value for me, in a size my girls can wear and use for years and years.
Have you ever cried over a gift? What was it? Let me know in the comments!
And then go visit my friend Jamie and see how her week went!
