  • The Bride & Groom Shower

sleeting outside and Facebook is full of frustrated comments about how old man winter needs to go ahead and leave. I’m the odd ball that actually loves bad weather. Sure, it’s not ideal when it gets in the way of our plans, but it slows life down…. and I like that. We’re gearing up for wedding season but the last week has been so wonderful. We didn’t have much on the calendar. We had several just “stay at home” work days and I got a lot accomplished. So bring on one last snow storm because I like the way it feels when life comes to a stand still for a day…. AND I have wedding invitations to design!

Crazy! It’s that time already!! Emy and Joe are getting married in like two months! AH! I mentioned that during my WPPI talk and got all teary! I’m such a sap! So speaking of their wedding, we celebrated with friends and family this weekend at a Bride and Groom shower. Joe and Emy came into town and our sweet family friends threw them a beautiful shower!

Ya know, the older I get and the more life I live… the more I realize just how BLESSED I was to grow up in our little hometown with such an amazing church family. We have friends from back home that are literally like FAMILY. These friends have come running in emergencies…. they’ve driven hours to come pick us up when we were broken down…. they hosted dozens of giant sleepovers and snow parties… they’ve cried with us and celebrated with us… they have seen our awkward seasons and our greatest accomplishments… they have vacationed with us…. they’ve adopted us as their own… they’ve watched us grow up and they’ve watched us fall in love.  I’m so grateful for friends like this.

The Terry’s and The Beale’s and The Burke’s threw Joe and Emily a wonderful shower on Saturday and I’m so thankful for people that love my little sister so well. I never want to take these amazing women for granted. I absolutely LOVE this picture of the Beale, James and Terry gals from Saturday! (Minus Katie! boo!) Love you all! Thank you for all of your hardwork!!!!! xoxoxo

    I love the way you speak of your friends and family. It makes me want to be included in your world! How genuine you are really is just so beautiful. Also, what an awesome shower! Bride and Groom showers haven’t caught on where I live but I hope they do soon.

    Oh, and I also love a good snow day. What better way to get things done than when you can’t leave the house?
