As you read these words, Jonathan and I are somewhere over the the Gulf of Mexico-we are traveling from Buenos up to Redding, California overnight on Monday and land around 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
Our dear friends Chris and Melissa get married this Saturday (woot, woot) and we are rushing to celebrate with them.
Their wedding is sure to be charming and full of all the things Melissa so values-like friends, beauty and good conversation. We are stoked.
And we are so grateful to celebrate with these dear, dear friends.
It's funny-when I met this Christopher a year ago, I didn't know the role he would soon be playing in "our" lives. He's an amazing man of God and I couldn't be happier to see my beloved friend with someone so incredible, someone who loves her so well.
Melissa and I met in the spring of 2007...Mel, it's crazy to realize that's already been 6 years....
Mel-we have lived through a lot of seasons together. From the house of prayer in D.C. to a week in Kansas City, to road trips to Michigan to a spontaneous weekend at my mom's house in Kentucky, I am grateful for our hours of talks about life, love and all the depths of our hearts. [Over and over again.]
From early morning Starbucks dates...to middle of the night Starbucks dates...you know all my fears as well as my hopes and dreams. You hold my secrets so carefully.
Melby, I love that you are the most loyal of friends, generous and full of depth. I love the way you ask questions, see the world around you and care for those in your life oh-so-well. You are amazing and I'm more grateful than these small words can convey to call you one of my dearest and most cherished heart friends.
I am honored and so happy to stand up beside you on Saturday...and for the rest of our lives. So here I come to celebrate with you in all the special moments of your wedding week. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
