i love spring.
flowers, sandals, sun, and weddings.
i love weddings! nothing better than seeing a couples’ quirksonalities (new wordjam thankyouverymuch) come out and celebrate with them on such a wonderful day. i also have a theory about photogenic fairies that descend on wedding days, but that’s another story.
since i’m one of those crazy kids who got married super young, i’ve never been in any wedding but my own (unless you count the time i got to cut the groom’s cake, but that was only because the couple felt bad for asking my sister to sing and not me. i don’t blame them. i can’t sing. i can’t cut cake either, but that didn’t seem to bother anyone).
this june, i get to celebrate the wedding of one of my dearest high school friends and the beau she’s been with since way back then. last weekend we kicked off wedding season with a shower extraordinaire!
i should have taken more pictures of the food, but i was busy eating it. let me just tell you, southern baptists know how to lay a shower spread, and “fellaship” . . .
. . . and wrap a present. look at that flower bow!
most of all it was wonderful to celebrate our friend valarie. we showered her with this treat i found via my bff Pioneer Woman, and picked up from the Cake Pan Lady! It says “From the Kitchen of Mrs. Mills,” so she’ll never lose it at one of those potlucks she’ll be fellashippin at.
what a beautiful friend! i can say that since i knew her when we were both lookin’ pretty rough! cheers to wedding season.
