I heard about this young woman, Savannah, before she was even born…and evidently I knew her mom, Jessie, before I was born! Jessie and my mom were both pregnant at the same time and new to Colorado as their husbands were to be playing for the Denver Broncos in the fall of 1977. Long short, Jessie and I spent our early years together but after a few moves and life changes, we didn’t see one another until we were in our late twenties. That’s when destiny brought us back together and I heard Savannah was on her way!
I’ve been blessed to watch Savannah grow up (and get taller too) over the last twelve years and be a part of Jessie’s heart expanding even more as her daughter gets older. They met me in north Parker on a strip of the Cherry Creek Trail and we strolled around finding soft sun and yellow flowers. I enjoyed the mother-daughter moments through the lens and also taking Savannah’s hand down into the flower beds for some off-trail adventures. She did great and we managed to get a good number of giggles out of the almost-teenager.
