I witnessed a gender reveal today while out for an evening run. A photographer friend, a picturesque farm, a golden sunset and two confetti cannons filled with tiny strips of sparkly pink paper are all you need. I didn’t know the couple or their pair of friends that helped to set the perfect outdoor stage and capture the moment that her family will remember for years to come. I don’t know what her name will be but I do know that a year from now, there will be a new baby girl in the world.
It was a privilege to be a quiet bystander as her proud parents announced her existence to the universe with a bang. The sounds of the confetti cannons were like the fanfare of fireworks on the 4th of July. It was the kind of heartwarming people watching that renews your faith in humanity. Welcome to the world baby girl!
