Megan and I met the first day of our Senior year in high school when her parents moved their family from Atlanta to San Antonio. We attended a small private school in North San Antonio. I'm talking less than 100 students per class small. So, when someone new came to our school, everyone noticed. I remember as that first day went on, I had been placed in a class with the 'new girl.' I vividly remember Megan being a bit shy, but also had a magnetic smile & a willingness to meet new people at our school. I remember making the transition myself from a public school to this small, close-knit private school where about 80% of the students had been peers going to this school since Pre-K. I remember feeling a bit odd just being added to this group of students even back in between my 4th & 5th grade year when I made my transitioned, However, I remember my first school year becoming easier as I was grateful for the friendships I made with girls that were kind to me and open to new girls being added to the school. Our Senior year of High school was one for the books & Megan was usually involved with the most fun stories with our group of friends. Although our friendship began that short Senior year in High School and despite almost always living in different states or cities, our friendship has grown in the past decade. Throughout the years, not only has Megan introduced me to the best Atlanta rap music and also to the calming practice of yoga, but she has also been quite an inspiration of mine for how well she handles and copes with Lyme disease & different struggles she is so authentic in sharing. Her authenticity in her story has shown me her strength & courageousness many people our age shy away from.
After college in Colorado, Megan moved to Dallas and that is where she met the love of her life and now husband, Trey. Want to know the crazy part of their story? He was a Junior at our small private school the year we graduated & when Megan went off to school in Colorado, they were only acquaintances. Fast forward to years afterwards and God crossed their paths again in Dallas. Now, several years later, they are married and expecting their first child. Sometimes I forget how important my job is. It's days like this when I can look back at the moments I am able to capture for each of my clients that truly reminds me of my 'WHY?'. My 'Why' is to love & serve my clients & being able to do this for such a deserving couple and close friends is truly is a reminder of why I do what I do.
Also, can you just go ahead and see why I think Megan radiates the term ‘Pregnancy Glow’ ? How adorable is this excited, happy & expecting momma? Seriously can’t wait to see y’all as parents!
Megan and Trey,
Zach & I really appreciate you coming up to visit us in Lago Vista. We couldn't be more excited for you both as you walk in to this next chapter of your lives together. We know you will both make great parents to your sweet girl & we both truly appreciate your friendship even after all these crazy years. I can't wait to meet your new bundle of joy in August!
Psalm 127:4-5 "Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. "
