Dylan’s first birthday was great from the start. Rochelle, a fellow blogger who is launching her own business, Purple Heart Lifestyle, sent me a custom handmade mommy bracelet with a “Dylan” engraved pennant, along with the sweetest note. Though it was Dylan’s big day, the bracelet and message came to me when I needed a pick me up the most. The whole overnight “baby to toddler” thing was a lot more emotional than I anticipated, partly because pregnancy isn’t in our future. And even though adoption is, there’s a fat chance we may never have a little baby again. So thanks to Rochelle’s sweet words, generosity, and talent, I was one happy momma.
