Anyway, Tamara got married a little bit north of Atlanta, so my family came up and stayed with me, and then we all went up to the wedding together. It was wonderful, but also soooooooo weird. There were all of these people from my old church that I hadn’t seen in eons. It was a blast from the past, for sure. But I so enjoyed catching up with them. I was really grateful that I got to go. And of course, the wedding was lovely. I’m sure it doesn’t come as a shock to hear that I caught the bouquet – again! This is the fifth bouquet I’ve caught in the last year, and the fourth one in a row! Really makes me question the validity of the assumption that whoever catches the bouquet will be the next one to get married….lol ;).
But anyway, back to the wedding…I was particularly impressed by the fact that Tamara made her own cake – and it was beautiful! I always love weddings….especially when I particularly love the people getting married! 😉 Plus, bonus points, Tamara has moved to the outskirts of Atlanta with her new husband, so I’m gonna get to see much more of her in the future!! 🙂
|Tamara made this – isn’t it beautiful??|
|My baby brothers!! Not so baby anymore….|
|I made Josh dance with me. It was a hard-fought battle. Lol|
Spending time with my family while they were here for the wedding was also quite a treat. It was a brief visit, but good. We all camped out on the floor of my apartment – definitely a bonding experience! 🙂 And Chris and Julia got to come by briefly, along with their newest addition, a little kitten named Moose. As you can see below, it seems that everyone has fallen in love with baby Moose.
This semester has been one of extremes. Heartache and excitement, pain and wonder, stress and joy, despair and triumph. But through it all, the Lord and the wonderful family and friends that He was given me have brought me through it all. I can’t say that I’ve been strong throughout it all…but in our weaknesses He is strong, and God has certainly not failed me in that regard. I’ll have one more update from school, and then I’ll be moving on to the next exciting chapter of my life! I’m super excited to see what He teaches me :).
