This weekend was kind of a milestone for myself and my group of friends. I only talk to a few people from high-school (aren't we all like that? Sometimes I feel bad for not living up to all of the K.I.T.'s I wrote in people's yearbooks.... haha) but those few people are the ones who have seen it all; each crazy stage of life. A couple of those girls are engaged now, and Saturday I had the pleasure and pain of helping throw one of them her very first bridal shower. It was also my very first time throwing a bridal shower, so this was a bit ridiculous for all of us.
Outside of all of the crazy running around, screwed up invitations, potatoes that refused to bake, and a friendly tornado...we pulled it off. I sat back and watched as she opened her gifts and was amazed at how far we have come. How cool to have seen her grow from a skinny flag twirler freshman year to a gorgeous teacher with a strong love for her future husband. Neat-o. The end was a success, she's more than stocked with bowls from Crate & Barrel, we had some kick-ass mojitos, and we've all passed another milestone!
Here is a picture of us from Saturday...you're probably asking why I just didn't go ahead and wear some yellow pants :)
And here is a shot from Kelsey's (bride-to-be) engagement that I shot last spring.
