SARA: who says: Photos from a recent train ride. Loved the look of joy in his face! Clearly one amazing moment for him.
SHANNON: who says: My mom gives the best advice. Here’s a snippet of a text that I wrote down to remember, and follow.
STACEY: whose journaling reads: If I could be stuck in any moment, it would be this one. I hope we always hold onto it!
STEPH: (whose big day is coming up next month – YAY!)
