I interrupt the self-indulgent dating posts to share one of the sweetest things– my pals here are adopting a baby boy!!! Brie surprised Stephen on his work trip in Chicago with the news that they’re going to be parents. Watch that video. Cry a little. Smile a lot. And ya’ll. They’re gonna be the best parents.
I’ve known Brie and Stephen for 8 years– we worked at Camp Merri-Mac and Camp Timberlake together for years (Brie and I were co-counselors to the most fun, raucous group of 10-year-olds ever) and now they live the dream and live/work/play in Athens. I can’t think of anything that makes me happier than the idea of them raising a child– THEY ARE THAT AWESOME. And… Their baby boy comes to them in 8 DAYS. Eight days!
AND THAT’S NOT ALL! If you live in Athens… There is a massive yard sale happening at their house this weekend, Friday and Saturday. And when I say massive… I mean… they basically can’t fit in their house there is so much stuff.
Every little bit will help the @owens_adoption happen, so thank you in advance!
