I Became an Aunt Today


"I became an aunt today! This entire day was very surreal. I woke up
early for work this morning and my day started out as usual, but things
quickly changed after I found out that my only sister was in labor.
Hannah Grace was born at 2:50pm today, and both her and her mommy are
beautiful and healthy. It was amazing and I’m so glad that I got to be
a part of this special day. I was also thrilled when I remembered that
I always keep at least one Moleskine in my bag, because it came in
handy today… I was able to get the baby’s footprint in my journal, as
well as a Polaroid of me holding her! That’s something I’ll be able to
cherish forever now."

  1. That’s just beautiful, wow.
    I knew moleskines were useful, but I think that is the best use for them that I’ve heard of yet

  2. Congrats Shanon! And the footprint is a greta idea. I need to do more stuff like that.


  3. Congratulations, Shannon, and to your sister especially. Amazing how tiny those little feet are, isn’t it? And all the miles they will bear — wonder where they will go.
