A Wonderful Wedding

Praise the Lord we are all well right now, except for cedar fever. Usually, we are all sick with something in January. Last year it was pneumonia and the year before it was the flu. It's nice to be well for a change.

So, I have decided to stop procrastinating and post about a notable event that just occurred. My friend was married on December 31st...almost three weeks ago! After a two-year courtship, she finally tied the knot. I am so happy for her. I know, I have been meaning to post about it, but things have been a little busy around here. =)

I had the privilege of being her maid of honor...something I've never done before. It was a lot of fun doing nails and having our hair done by two talented friends of the family. They did a great job doing seven girls' hair in roughly three hours. It was amazing. They learned how to create these styles on a really cool blog: We have enjoyed trying some styles out too.

My sister Michelle did this neat updo for me!
Thanks Michelle!
And the Bride was absolutely gorgeous. Her mother made the wedding dress and sewed tiny beads all over it. It was beautiful and so was she. I'm thankful that I was able to be a part of this wonderful day in their lives. I pray that their new life together will be devoted to serving God and each other.

Note: Michelle took all of the photos in this post! Thanks Michelle! =)
