It is true isn't? Every girl does want to be a princess! It doesn't really matter how old you are! Well, lucky for me I was able to do just that! I'm sharing the following story with you because it is somewhat the beginning of a beautiful friendship I have with Mike and Brooke. Why am I telling you about them? Well first of all because I love and adore them (as well as their two children) but also because Mike has agreed to perform our wedding ceremony. Not only that but he and Brooke are going to help Josh and I in our "premarital planning." We start this weekend!
Here's the story!
Two years ago my friend Shannon and I were faithful to support our church's softball team by attending the games and cheering them on. One of the players on the team was Mike. I had seen him before because he is very involved in our church. He serves as a deacon, sings in the choir, sings in ensembles, helps with the youth, and pretty much does whatever is needed. Brooke, his better half, was always at the games to support her husband and the other men playing. It was through that she and I began a friendship. I immediately took a liking to her because was spunky, sassy, and funny...just like me! :) I hadn't really known her all that well when she asked if I would help her out with her daughter's birthday party. Before realizing what was really in store I said yes. It was then I realized she wanted me to dress up like a Disney Princess. She kept telling me I didn't have do it and that she knew she was asking a lot of me. Are you kidding? An excuse to dress up like a princess. That doesn't come around every day...unless you're a child and then it is completely acceptable. I kept telling her I would love to and then began searching for my costume. We decided Cinderella was a good choice! I was going to go to the local consignment stores and see if I could make something work but decided it would be easier and much more authentic if I ordered a costume online. And so I did!
Don't mind the dark roots!
