This weekend I flew with my family to my hometown in Florida to be a bridesmaid in my best friend Kelly’s wedding. I had the honor of being one of her bridesmaids and Edith was one of the four flower girls. It was such a surreal experience to see someone I have known for 15 years get married. Finding a good friend is hard and keeping up those friendships, especially when there is distance between them, can make it even harder, so I truly cherish this relationship.
Edith was so excited to be a flower girl. For months and months we talked about it, watched youtube videos, and even practiced what she would do on the big day. Of course, as soon as she got to the chairs she froze and started crying. I tried to wave to her to and convince her to come down but ended up having to run down and get her. Luckily, Kelly said it was the best part so I’m glad we could provide the funny moment they can laugh about for years to come.
She was seriously the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. Every single detail of her wedding was gorgeous – the flowers, the table decor, and the guest book. But my favorite part was their vows. There was so much love and honesty that really made me think back to my vows and how I can try and do a better job of living up to those daily.
Thank you so much Kelly for letting us be a part of your special day.
