Every Little Moment

With a list of things to do
today...
and three days till the
wedding,
what better thing is there than to sit at my
laptop and write
one last post as a
single gal.

Special note slipped under my door by my special brother,
Josh.  Thank you so much, buddy!  I love you too!
Last week was a whirlwind of
work,
seeing family,
spending time with siblings,
laughing and crying,
and just remembering to
breathe.

At the local antique store
Jessica, Natalie, and I went on our last
all-singles-sister-date
about a week ago.
We had SUCH a good time together.


We drank smoothies,
goofed off at the park,
did girl-stuff.
:-)
I love you both so much,
you are two of my dearest friends.


I also had an "early Mother's Day"
with my lovely Mom.
Okay... the truth is that I HATE
waiting to give gifts,
so I ended up giving it to her
two days early.
:-)

I really do have the best parents in the
world...
there's no denying it.


This week has included
TONS of last-minute shopping,
hanging out with my man
(who flew in last Saturday,
sorry for the lack of pictures!),
running around like a crazy woman,
getting an apartment,
Andrew's job getting figured out,
(Praise God for both the job and the apartment!),
contacting tons of people with wedding details,
and the list goes on...

Thank you so much to those who have
prayed for me (and for Andrew)
over the last few months.
God is SO good.

I'm not certain when my next post will be,
but I promise I will be back!

Farewell, blogging-as-a-single-gal years...
the parting is bitter-sweet.
But much more sweet than bitter.
I'm thankful for every
moment God has given me
in this part of my story, but
I know a new chapter awaits and can't
wait to see what the
future
holds.

God bless, my dear friends!
