Spring Cleaning of You Contest Winner
We are slightly delayed in announcing our "spring cleaning of you" contest winner due to her new bundle of joy. She actually received the news of winning while still recovering in the hospital from his delivery.
Julia Pierce lives in Shelbyville, KY with her husband Jeffrey, and their new baby boy, Isaac. Although Isaac is the only child in the Pierce home, he is not their firstborn.
Their firstborn child is their precious daughter, Ruby Ann. Ruby entered the world 3 months early and equipped with the heart of a fighter. She spent 4.5 months in the NICU, where her parents traveled daily to be by her side.
Their constant love and commitment to Ruby allowed her to eventually join them at home. Despite lingering breathing issues, she began to grow into an active and happy little girl. Ruby's smile was a constant banner of her resilience and triumphs, as she had already overcome so much in her short life.
Three days before her first birthday sweet Ruby Ann was unexpectedly called to her eternal home by her Heavenly Father.
Julia and Jeffrey experienced the unthinkable, the earthly loss of their child. Possibly the most remarkable part of their story is not only the way the displayed grace during this process,but how they extended that grace to those grieving around them.
Julia is a gifted singer/musician and she used her gifts for Ruby's celebration of life and funeral service. The commitment this mother showed from birth to death in the life of her daughter is something to admire. The Pierce's credit their faith for the strength to endure this immeasurable loss.
We at Bloom's and Loxx Salon couldn't have been more honored to shine a little joy into Julia's life by pampering her for a day... because she most certainly deserves it.
