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.


  1. Where's you get your dress from?

  2. After months of reading your blog I finally realized who it is you remind me of- Anne of Green Gables!!! She was also dripping with passion for everything in life. I love it!

    PS- I haven't commented to tell you congratulations before now but I am beyond thrilled for you. You and the boy just look like you fit together so I was very sad when the break-up occurred. Now it feels like all is right in the universe again.

  3. Yeah it is finally your turn! Congratulations! So excited for you and the boy!

  4. I wish we had been able to have a shower for you with our side of the family. Maybe a bachlorette party, hmmm ; )

  5. There's nothing like great friends! And creative ones make it even better. These women are treasures!
