Evie girl. The daughter of my sweet friend Thao who boarded a plane in her third trimester, to move to London with her husband. Adventurous much? This beautiful girls life has been stocked full of adventure before she even knew it. Thao and I met at a leaders training meeting for an amazing organization called Girls for a Change. We actually sat right next to each other and made a little bit of small talk through out the day… I thought, I like this girl! Little did we know, our names were already matched on a piece of paper before we even walked in the room. We were embarking on quite the endeavor…Co-coaching a group of awesome girls from some very difficult circumstances. We felt like fish out of water for the first few weeks. I mean, these girls, who had seen more, and gone through more than we probably ever will in a lifetime, were looking to US as their coaches. What were we to teach them??? But we made connections… they taught us so much… and we listened.
All of that is the prelude. Evie was just a twinkle in Thao’s eye at the time. Greg and her werent engaged yet. No idea that she would be getting married within a year in Mexico and then traveling to London, belly swollen with this beautiful girl. Life happens. And it has been so much fun to watch all of it unravel and be in the midst of it for my co coach and dear friend. So, Evie. She is beautiful and full of life. She is so alert. She feels like an old soul, just like her mama. All this to say, it was so so fun getting to take Evie’s 6 month pictures when they were in town. And it was the first time I got to meet this spunky little lady! Enjoy Miss Evie and her beautiful mama.
