A Garden Party for the Bride

I peered out my window the morning of this garden party, and was like “Ohhhh crap!” — Our lawn was covered in weeds and kinda dying.. : I quickly ran to the store and picked up some flowers and “gardened” for the first time EVER. Hahaha! Brad and I spent all day trying to spruce up our yard, and I honestly don’t know how it came together so well! I laid giant quilts over the yellow patches of grass, and the flowers actually added a really nice pop.

Amber’s reaction when she walked up to the party was the cutest!! I wish I would have gotten it on camera – “Guys, I’m going to cry!”. It was especially fun to go above and beyond for her bridal shower, because she really didn’t expect much. Amber is one of the last of the bunch to get married, in my group of friends — so the marriage advice was so uplifting and bonding sitting in a big group. We’ve all known each other for 10+ years, so it feel like a bunch of sisters getting together. Amber, I’m so excited for you and Steve, and I cannot wait to see you as a bride. I love you, friend!

Here is an embarrassing video of Amber and I, when we lived in Bolivia during our service internship.

Oh, and don’t forget this one too!
