Audrey and Nate. 13 and 10. Officially. They are 2 years & 9 months apart to the day. I always joke Nate was 7 days late on purpose so he and Audrey shared the same birth-day of the month! This year – double digits and teenager 😊  I swear they just looked like this….   […]

They all worked so hard this year and had so much fun. And as much as I love watching them do their thing – I TOTALLY love the friendships the most. Sweet moments taking care of each other! Recital is over and it was so fabulous! Summer has officially kicked off xoxo -Stacy
