February 20th - My FINALLY Day

February 20, 2020

February 20th. Forget Valentine’s Day - this is my favorite day of the month. 

February 20, 2016 - Zach & I got engaged๐Ÿ’


February 20, 2019 - I found out I was pregnant.๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ


And today, we have this cute lil nugget melting hearts all over town.๐Ÿฅฐ


I keep calling it the Ollieversary. Zach calls it the Alltheversary. I think he wins haha ๐Ÿ˜œ

Both days came after years of waiting, hoping, wishing & praying. Both days came after hardship & heartbreak. But only one of these things was a complete surprise to me - Ollie.

I can still vividly remember how I felt on both of these days. 4 years ago, this was our 3rd proposal attempt (story for another day - the universe was so mean to poor Zach) and we were both laughing at our bad luck, but excited to make it “official” so we could tell everyone. A year ago, my period was super late but the drs said we couldn’t have kids. I took the test just to prove I wasn’t pregnant, but felt a small glimmer of hope that maybe I’d see 2 lines. I expected to be disappointed so I was speechless and overwhelmed when it was positive. How was this possible?!

Time has flown - I feel like I got a ring & 2 lines yesterday. But I also feel like I’ve been with Zach forever and it’s hard to remember our lives before Ollie.

The best things in our life often come like this - after years of waiting, hoping, heartbreak, praying, and hard work. And when it happens, your soul screams “FINALLY.” February 20th is my FINALLY day.

I can’t imagine my life without this little family. It truly feels like our souls were made for one another. My heart is still bursting with gratitude and I don’t take for granted that I get to be with both of them forever.❤️
