Hi sweet friends!
I'm telling you, these past couple of months have been CRAZY!
Life is just busy y'all. But it's all good stuff and I'm feeling pretty grateful these days.
There is so much to share and I decided that as I get back into this whole blogging thing, I will share all that our little family has been up to lately over the course of a few blog posts.
So with that being said - let's start with most recently . . . MY BABY SISTER GETTING MARRIED LAST WEEKEND!
Cue all the tears!!!
Oh you guys, doesn't she look beautiful??
I can't even believe that she is married - my heart still feels like it is going to burst because it is just so full of joy and happiness from this past weekend.
Honestly, I expected to get a little bit emotional at the wedding, but y'all , I was a full on blubbering mess through most of the day.
I was doing just fine until she put on her dress and then all of us bridesmaids and my mom surrounded her in prayer - it was at that point where I (and the rest of the girls) completely lost it.
I'm a little nervous to see the pictures of that whole shindig - If I wasn't trying to wipe the tears from my eyes, I was trying to hold my nose from running like a faucet and well neither of those are pretty scenes.
Catie - I apologize in advance for those photos.
But all kidding aside, that moment was one that I don't think I will ever forget. It was so beautiful.
Then it was time to walk down the aisle - Taylor and I walked down together and then when Catie and my dad walked down I lost it again (this time in front of the whole church). It was just so sweet and bless Matt's dad - he completely lost it up at the alter and just looking at him had all of us in tears.
Honestly, for not thinking that I'd cry much, I did my FAIR share.
The whole day was beautiful and it was everything that Catie and Matt had envisioned for their wedding.
And now they are in ROME on possibly the most magical honeymoon EVER!
I LOVE wedding weekends - they bring so many people together.
A lot our family lives out of state and most of us don't get to see each other often, so when we have opportunities like this to all be together, we seriously have the BEST time.
Taylor + I were feeling dapper in our outfits (I actually LOVED our whole look)
A preview into what the professional photos are going to look like - eeeek!
We had family and friends come in town from all over the place - California, Chicago, Virginia Beach, Texas, Utah, Georgia and a ton of other places.
My aunt Janice and cousin Carly stayed at my parents place with Taylor, myself and the rest of our family.
It was a full house and while it was hectic, busy and a little bit chaotic at times, I think I can speak for all of us staying there and say that we wouldn't of had it any other way. I love a full house.
I brought my camera this weekend and took A TON of photos. I may have gone a little crazy on the picture train, but looking back at them this week has me so thankful that I took them.
Here are some of my favorites - I love my family!
And that's a wedding weekend wrap!
. . .
Have a great weekend, friends!
