Brooke's Wedding

Yesterday I headed down to Tennessee to see one of my best friends from college get married. The ceremony was beautiful. Brooke looked like Barbie and the love between she and Chad was contagious. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen, and I was so honored to witness their special day.

Eric and Eli didn't go with me, so as I set in the few with my dearest friends I had time to reflect on my own vows. As sappy as is may seem, I was moved to tears thinking of mt marriage as I listened to them commit to forever. In the short course of our marriage we have been through so much, and yet the love and commitment as grown stronger and deeper. I am so blessed to call Eric my husband and weddings remind me of that.

I've said it before, but there is nothing like getting together with college friends. Something about it keeps you young. It reminds you of a time when life was less complicated and completely full of hope and anticipation of the future. Since graduating, I have seen three of my best friends walk down the isle, and each time it's perfect!

I rode down with Katie and Kristen who were both in my wedding, and we met up with Alex and her husband Micheal. Even though we don't see each other much, it's like we pick up right where we left off. We reminisce about the past, laugh at our mistakes and ponder the future.

I could call those girls at any time for anything and they would be here before I could turn around. That's what friendship is, and although I have the most wonderful friends in the worlds now, nothing could ever or will ever replace the bond I share with these ladies. I know that one day they'll all be sitting beside me wiping my tears away at Eli's wedding...sigh!
