Life in Black and White

“That’s when I realized what a true friend was. Someone who would always love you- the imperfect you, the confused you, the wrong you- because that is what people are supposed to do.” 

My dear Chels has been the truest if the true, the best of the best. The sweetest friend + sister a girl could have. We are squeezing in lots of memories before she heads off in just three weeks. Random chats, drinking coffee together, a fantastic + super later movie night, and every other little thing possible. Ahh, these are sweet days yet we are both so excited for the new chapter starting.

“The more you celebrate your life, the more there is to celebrate.” -Oprah Winfrey

Especially celebrating the beautiful gifts of love + marriage these days! This beautiful attic bridal shower was stunningly unforgettable- an elegant sit down dinner, an eclectic devotional, praying around the circle, lots of beautiful gifts, and homemade cheesecake and brownies over sweet fellowship. It was perfectly elegant, relaxed, and joyful.

“The most precious jewels you’ll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.”

Holding this precious gem and watching her fall asleep- it was my favorite church service in a long time!

“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

This Christmas Production we get to be a part of is impossible, with so many elements and moving parts and a motley crew of volunteers. But God is good and our faith is stretched through this mountaineous endeavor.

“Enjoy the little things in your life….for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things.”

These precious little ladies are some of the “little things” that are actually so important in life. My precious little sisters. One morning we slowed down for a ladies breakfast, I took them with me to run errands just cause, and we ended up going out for coffee. These are the days!
