My brother's wedding is in five days. I prepared myself for this heck of a week by spending the weekend with one of my favorite people in the world, Beka. I hadn't seen her in a month (obscene) and we had long-overdue laughing and movie-watching and the hashing-out of every piece of life in an endless, oreo-punctuated conversation.
We got emotional while watching Fox and the Hound, and then were deliciously freaked out while watching Sixth Sense in bed at night. We managed plenty of cake, oreos, hot chocolate, banana cookies, cranberry juice, donuts, and chocolate ice cream.
And then after church on Sunday, I dragged my amigas to a gutted-out pharmacy several blocks away from church for a much-needed, deliciously unofficial photo shoot.
Nothing like torn-up turquoise and red and yellow walls and sunspots and red leaves for some serious photo-taking therapy.
Hadley commandeered my camera... I'm still not sure about my hair straightened. It's not technically naturally curly... more like "naturally undecided" but it's way different when I straighten it.
I'm wearing the dress that my sister bought me in Poland this summer. :)
I love these people. :)
Today was a good start to this week. Some things are tough, but other stuff is glorious. And the glorious stuff makes everything else that much easier. : )
