Bridal showers are so special, and recently we had the honor of going down to Florida for Miss Gracie S.'s amazing afternoon that her dear sister and sister-in-law threw for her.
It was a complete blast! Observe, dear people, the massive amount of genius, creativity and love in details such as the one above-my word! (How cute are the tux buttons!?)
I just couldn't get over all the loveies scattered here and there, the joyful greetings and the general dreamy-ness (white tulle invokes such princess-ish thoughts!!) of the decorations. All that, though, paling in comparison, to the sense of love and joy that was there surrounding you. It is so good to celebrate with people who love Jesus.
Our day begins with:
Words can't say how much we love this girl, or how fun and risky it is to travel several hours with her. :D The shower being a few hours away, we, being the thrify people that we are, and knowing the town was surely destined to have some goodwills and the like, left early in the morning and made a day of it all! So, here we be, in the back, cuddled in our girl nest, where Mother fed us cinnamon rolls and Chik-fil-A nuggets, and orange juice. (I have recently been into turbans.)
(LOL, no-but, the dress was actually kind of cool, just not for your big day...wedding stuff is so fun!)
(Oh. Wow. Speaking of shoes I found the most amazing men's shoes while we were there. They were made in Italy, of leather, brown, with an incredible patina that would make you swoon. They had obviously been worn a few times, but the quality of the shoes only displayed it's wear to it's advantage. Gloriousness. I almost bought them and put them in my Hope Chest for F. H. :D Haha! There are few things more beautiful then exquisitely crafted footwear. Too bad they wouldn't fit any of our guys. *sniff* That's the only sorrow of thrift store shopping. You find perfection, in price and product, just in the wrong size.)
And then...we arrive at the party!!
"In the usual manner of, elegant females..."
Felt like an idiot, though. How many words can Adeline write out using the letters G-r-a-c-e-D-a-v-i-d? Very few, I discovered. At least I didn't have to show anyone my paper, LOL. :D Pictured is Kennedy's genius.
We had to step our earlier then we wanted, as we had to get back before it got too dark, but the time we got to be there with them was a great blessing to us.
These two pictures make my heart smile every time I look at them. It is so good to be together.
Love to y'all, kind readers.
The weather was almost perfect today. Blue skies, in the 70's with the clean piney Winter smell in the breeze, and a golden moon rising tonight to end the day. It was truly beautiful.
