This one's for my girls!

This past weekend I had my bachelorette party. Emmy and Amanda (Maitron and Maid of Honor) put on an awesome party...they did quite the planning. We went to a place called "Retro on the River". This house was awesome, but what was so cool about it was the women that joined to celebrate with me. Everyone had their part...bringing food, wine and laughter into the house!

I just want to say how very blessed I feel to have so many women that I can count on to celebrate with or to call on when I need a friend! I am thankful for each of you!

The weekend was trully special and memorable!

Denice, Mary and my mom have this habit of closing their eyes when the flash goes off, so they have figured out if they look above the camera they are fine...makes for some interesting pictures ;)
