The perfect dress!

Two of my precious best friends from childhood are getting married next year in March and July. Today I got to go with one of them to find the perfect dress! Let me tell you, it was quite the experience! We’ve been friends since we were 10, so we really get each other. She had a pretty clear idea of what she wanted which was nice! I kept thinking how surreal it was that she was trying on wedding dresses! I’m so blessed with my lifelong friendships, but at 10 years old you never imagine that 12 years down the road you’ll be shopping together for the most important dress you’ll ever wear!!

It was such a special time and I’m so glad to say she found the PERFECT dress! She will be the most beautiful bride and I can’t wait for her lucky guy to see her, she will take his breathe away! Being a bridesmaid is so so fun, I can’t wait for the crazy year to come!

Thankfulness

Since moving back, I’ve gotten to experience the church I grew up in as an adult.  It has been pretty cool. I know pretty much everyone and they know me. So I still feel  at home, but now I’m not in a youth group so there are more ways to be involved. Last night I got to participate in a ladies bible class taught by two amazing women of God. We’re talking about thankfulness! The class was inspired by the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.  As part of the class they challenged us to start our own list of 1000 things we’re thankful for. This will shift our thinking into being grateful for the “little things”. I’m so excited to start this journey, and see where the Lord will lead me in thankfulness! Join me if you’d like!
