RHIANNON AND HER VALENTINE

RHIANNON AND HER VALENTINE

Rhiannon made her debut in my world as my very first 2484 customer.

Bursting in to my new lifestyle space with the finesse, colour, smiles and grace that she exudes so easily.

I remember clearly she nabbed herself an electric peacock blue Lisa Brown silk gown ... (and looked impeccably STUNNING)

The thing was, we weren't actually open yet.  I'm not even sure our changerooms had been set up?

No matter, when there's fashion to be perused ... what's a closed door and a half set up shop between friends!?

And that we've become.

Many a coffee and studio chat about life, love and longing ... Rhiannon's story is a full rainbow.

One of the first (stories) she shared with me was heart achingly sad.

The experience of loosing a baby.

Second trimester and brimming with excitement Rhiannon's first baby, Leo was born prematurely and only to be held alive by her for a fleetingly short moment in time.

Rhiannon's (and her beautiful husband Miles') experience of loss, hurt, pain, courage, bravery, healing and sharing is breathtakingly incredible.

Real, raw ... one of those beyond awful, unexplainable experiences that simply have no reasonable explanation ... and can only be felt by tears.

But after the storm, always comes the sun.

Bless, life has just recently been made so beautiful by the birth of their second son, Valentine Henry.

Oh sweet, sweet little Valley.

The most perfect fella you've ever laid eyes on!

Hard worked for - emotionally and physically - this little (BIG!) creation waited 4 years to come along.

Rhiannon and I (and bubba V) recently spent a sun kissed afternoon along the Tweed River taking pictures of her in my new DOT.HEY.YOU collection.

Chatting life, motherhood, work, love, inspiration ...  and how (if all all!?) ... to blend it all seamlessly together.

We didn't necessarily come up with any answers.

It was more just a vulnerable  sharing of how Motherhood - especially if you're throwing 'traditional/commercial work' into the mix {Rhi is an incredibly talented make up artist} - seems to be a messy bumbling along of breast milk, cute clothes, not enough sleep, edited Instagram photos and sweet cuddles.

We laughed.  Sighed.  

And resolved that we'll keep on walking forward.
