Those Girls

On Saturday I dressed quietly while Brian snuggled close to our daughter.

Their soft snores creating a hum in the room with each rise and fall of their chests.

My family.

I kissed them both and retreated, ready for my day full of friends, planning, and dress up.

Full of laughter, colour, and conversations.

A day at the Bridal Salon choosing bridesmaid dresses.

Those girls?

My greatest friends.

They could have chosen paper bags and I would have said YES! You look perfect.

And they would have.


Instead of paper bags they chose a dress that flattered all of them.

The day was filled with endless compliments, helpful suggestions, and hilarity.

I felt so much love.

And I am so grateful for it.
