Our weekend blessings just keep on coming in & we are receiving them with much gladness! :)
This weekend Ben & I got to host some more of our favorite-est people: the Butler ladies along with my mamma!
Jeri & my mom have been friends for over 30 years, and not just friends, but the friend who sticks closer than a
brother sister type! Jeri has a beautiful daughter Julian who I have known the better part of my life & who in the past few years has become such a sweet friend & sister to me!
All I can say is: It's so nice to have girl time. And I mean real girl time. I mean, yes, of course we did each other's hair & make-up & watched a romantic comedy (or two), but better than all those things were the girl heart-to-hearts that we had. We talked about life, the Lord, prayed together, laughed a lot & just enjoyed being in friendship & fellowship. I don't think I realized how much I needed good. solid. soul-searching. girl-time. Ahhhhh. thank you Lord! It's a beautiful thing to know that He created us to need those relationships.
And only a real man like Ben could handle the 4:1 ratio. He is so good & supportive :)
Here's a few pics of the weekend....some of them have random saturations & effects as I was playing around with my camera, learning the ropes, most of the weekend.
