>Satin has agreed to let me write about her but will not be guest posting :*( but that’s ok! I totally understand that she has a lot going on with a baby and summer!
I have known Satin for almost two years now. She was my first close friend in my town and she has been such a WONDERFUL, sincere, steadfast, loving, and nurturing friend to me!
We met through another couple at a church we both tried out for a few months. We had our loves of coffee, food, and girl time in common and, very soon after meeting, pregnancy.
We would meet at Starbucks or one of our homes at least once a week and encourage each other as we waited to have our beautiful babies. We were both transplants: she’s from the North Pacific and I’m from the North East (which are both MUCH different from the landlocked western state we found ourselves in), not to mention we both didn’t have any family or many friends. PLUS, we both decided to try to have the most natural birth experience possible by going to a birthing center AND, because that is not the most popular or supported option, we had each other to confide in.
Since we had our babies around the same time, over the last six months I have had the honor of seeing her as a mother. She is the same kind of mother as she is a friend. She is the kind of mother who knows her daughter through and through. She carves out time in her day EVERY DAY to spend quality time with her baby, on top of making games out of household chores so her daughter feels special.
I can already see that she is the going to be the kind of mother who makes her baby girl feel like a beautiful, precious, and sweet princess, like she did for me when she threw me a baby shower (in case you weren’t paying attention, she was just as pregnant as me at the time).
Satin has a beautiful heart and is going to form her daughter into a sophisticated, sweet, and confident young woman, and I’m very sad I won’t be closer to watch that happen! I love her and am going to miss her so very much when we move!
