We have had one busy but fun weekend around here!Caroline. It's a really fun story with Caroline. I met her through my blog probably 4-5 years ago. We met several times and a year ago - she felt like God was telling her to quit her teaching job in Texas and to move. She started applying to different schools in different areas and she ended up getting a teaching job HERE in my town. So crazy. She was even able to sell her house quickly in a bad market. She moved and right away met a guy named Shane. Caroline is 30 and has been trusting God to bring her a husband. So much so that when she heard God tell her to trust Him and move -- she did and in June she is getting married. It's been so fun to watch her story in progress. What a difference a year makes. I tell that to encourage you - you NEVER know where your life might be in a year.
Little cups of fruit
And of course monogrammed petit fours. We also had sausage balls and little quiches.
I stenciled this burlap sign. How fun is this picture!
I love drinking out of mason jars.
I found the cute straws and the blue and yellow poms at sweet lulu. Such fun party stuff!
I had these jars and just added burlap flowers and ribbon. I made Erin's mom's great punch and then just had lemon/lime water.
Me and the bride
She got lots of great gifts - like this frame I loved so much I may have to go get one myself!
We also had a neat time of prayer for her before we opened gifts. I thought that was really special.
Melissa and sweet baby Crew
I'm so thankful - my mom came and helped me with the shower. She was a HUGE help to me. My dad left for Nicauraga for a week yesterday to work with pastors so I was happy to have her with us. She helped me get my house cleaned up and then I took her to the new museum and the trail around it.
My sweet baby
We had a great weekend - I hope you did too!
