Eleven Weddings and a Cocktail

I have been blessed beyond measure with lovely friends. I don’t think I could be more happy for and proud of them, even if I tried. People joke about the movie 27 Dresses when they realize how many weddings I’ve been apart of over the years (and I’m only 24, mind you). Let’s see, just two summers ago, there were 3 backyard weddings, 5 church weddings, 1 wedding at a Manor, 1 beach wedding, and 1 barn wedding. Needless to say, my wardrobe has stepped it up a notch in the dress department. That being said, watching the Lord work through their relationships has touched my soul. They give me hope. Love exists.

I'm not a pessimist. I enjoy love and celebrate whole heartedly with every bride and groom. Brett and I just got married a few months ago, and it really was the best day of my life. We couldn't be more grateful for all the love and support we recieved from all of our favorite people. All that being said, years ago I harbored this outrageous thought, and all I want now is to release it into the wild, dust my hands off, and press on. Enjoy:

Your wedding day is only the most important day in the world to you. We love you, but we love lounging around and watching the Reds more. But soak it in and drink it up, my bride friends, because the only other time you’ll have a day that’s all about you will be your funeral. And you won’t even be there to enjoy it. Cheers.
