These girls...

These girls... So I mentioned this reunion a several posts back... well I have been thinking about these ladies and want to tell you just a little bit about them...


I love these girls.  From Left to Right is: Renee, Candace, me, and April.

Renee:  She is beautiful, spunky, artsy, and a passionate teacher.  She has a sweet spirit that is revealing of her core beauty.  I had the opportunity to be in a summer book study with her, and the other 2sday Girlz - where we went through Crazy Love by Francis Chan.  It was so encouraging to discuss this book with her, and hear her heart.  She was such a blessing to have in that group- and she is also a part of Launch (young adult Bible study) which I have (and will continue) talked about before.

Candace:  She is loyal, creative, fashionable, a great cook, and an adorable wife and momma.  She and I are kindred spirits in the way of organization queen-ness.  She and I met at youth group in high school at our church and have been good friends ever since, and we were lucky enough to go to college together.  She has a way of making things beautiful- regardless of their original state.  She is so crafty it is almost sickening :)   I love that after so many years... we still attend church together-- and remain in the same community of friends.  

April Elaine:  She is the sweetest thing on 2 legs, thrifty, soooo encouraging, beautiful, and she is the best friend a girl could ask for! She is my best friend.  You know it is a true friendship when you are roommates in college--- and still friends afterwards.  lol  We have been best friends for 12+ years and we know waaaayyyy too much about one another.  We love 'Friends' together-- quoting it often.  We go weeks without seeing one another and yet each time we are able to get together... its like not even a day has gone by.  We are so much alike and yet so different... the balance we are to each other is so beautiful!  We have discovered who we are together and dug into scripture together.  We have cried so many happy and sad tears together, we have laughed so hard we cry... I am so loved by this girl. 

Ahhhh.. that feels good to write out.  I love so many other ladies in my life... just wait-- I'm sure you'll hear all about them if you stick around long enough!


Who has been a blessing in your life today?
