last weekend my wonderful friends from high school threw me a bridal shower. it was in mallory's parents' back yard and it was just the sweetest, loveliest, darlingest little event. i am so sad that i forgot my real camera and only got a couple iphone shots of the enchanting charm! the set up was so adorable and the food was so yummy and the company was just the best. i sat there in the middle of the blithe utah summer evening, surrounded by dear friends, and just marveled at how happy all the air around me felt on my skin. i love these girls that i grew up with - some since elementary school, some since high school, some since college - so very, very much, and i could feel their excitement for me and the boy.
we caught up on each other's lives, enjoyed sweet and savory treats, shared love stories, opened presents, and stayed hours until it was dark chatting and laughing. gosh, it was just so fun.
seriously, i could hardly fall asleep that night just feeling full to the brim with gratitude and joy.
