Spending Easter weekend with some of my extended family was beyond wonderful. But I have to say- my favorite part of the weekend was the little Marigold that I found in South Carolina on Easter Sunday. Here she is:
Look at the clock. She’s 6 hours old! I’ve never had the chance to hold any of my nieces or nephews on the day they were born. It was magical. And look at her beautiful mama back there. She makes cute kids! (And doesn’t mind admitting it.) 🙂 And she looks pretty cute herself immediately afterwards. Also magical.
My brother had invited us to visit if she arrived while we were in NC. But… since life never does seem to work out that way, I assumed she would come later in the week when we were back in Kentucky trapped in our normal school routine. I didn’t really get my hopes up.
Until the phone rang. And I heard Roger say, “I’ll let you talk to your sister and tell her everything.” And then I heard that there’s a tiny new girl who shares my middle name. What a good day. Totally worth a 2 hour drive to meet this beautiful little person.
Marigold Evangeline. Sweet perfection.
