Best Friends

When Rowan was just 2 weeks old one of my best friends, Sarah, came to visit from Colorado and brought the sweetest gifts. Not only was there a pile of pretty clothes but they were her clothes from when she was a baby. I carefully tucked them away, for fear that they would get ruined among all her other rotating outfits, until the day she'd fit into them. I took them out of hiding recently and snapped some pictures of Rowan wearing two of her old baby shirts. They're so adorable in themselves, but then to imagine a sweet little baby Sarah in these over 20 years ago really tugs at the ol' heartstrings. I can't wait to pass these back on to her when she has a little girl of her own and she can show her these pictures of when Rowan was filling her clothes up with love and happy memories for her.
Hopefully we'll live a lot closer to each other when that day comes and they can become best friends like their mama's and make those memories together.

  1. Rowan's wearing vintage already! She knows what's up :) How sweet of your friend to give her the baby clothes she once wore. It's kind of a cool tradition you guys have started!
