Baby Penelope wearing Penelope Lane

 So... a few years ago when I started this little business I came up with the name "Little Penelope Lane". I just loved the name "Penelope" and so I went with it.
Soon after my brother, who was recently married reminded me (as I totally spaced it) that since forever he wanted to name his first daughter "Penny."
We all agreed and joked that the future Penny would just be the poster child for my business (not really sure if this business would even still be around, but here we are).

The day came when my brother and his darling wife Christy announced their pregnancy. 

I cried and cried as this was truly a miracle. 


You see my brother battled bone cancer from the time he was 14-16. 
he was very sick and it was 
a tough battle.
that he won. 
(but not without many, many surgeries, lots of chemo, worries from loved ones, and miracles). 

The doctors said he might not be able to have children from all the chemo.
the doctors were wrong.

My brother's dream of naming his first daughter "Penny" came true.
In September they welcomed Penelope Ann into their family.

Since starting this business people would ask me where the "Penelope" came from and I always said I just loved the name. 
Now I can say:
"It came from a miracle." 
Sure love that little Penny of ours!
