sweetest thing

Monday, April 23, 2012

This past weekend I had the privilege of hosting an engagement party with some of my best friends for one of our best friends.  The weather was questionable but ended in our favor as we spent the night laughing, smiling and just being together under the hanging lanterns and Raleigh air.  We had a blast decorating with burlap and fresh cut flowers but you want to know the best part?  When I looked over at Katelyn and Brent (the bride and groom to be) and in that moment I could see their happiness and time just kind of stopped.  Saturday night the world seemed to stand still and I remember saying to Matt over and over – this is perfect.  One of the best things in life is seeing one of your friends truly happy and at peace.  Sure there was excitement and giggling and lots of talking louder and louder and louder – but there was a peace about the night that just seemed right.

I could not be happier for you and Brent as you begin this journey together.  Saturday night was just the beginning of many celebrations to come for years and years.

And now some pictures from the weekend…
