Kayla and Sam

Oh man--you know what's almost as great as you getting married yourself? Your best friend getting married.

I'm just so happy for my best friend Kayla that I could almost pop.

Plus I feel like Sam fits right in with our little group of friends, which is important because it means that now that she's married, she won't disappear off the face of the planet.

Ya know?

And their reception was super cute (but I knew it would be because our friend Petrice was in charge of the food display and Kayla's sisters have all been on Pinterest for months).

My favorite thing?

The little "picture walk" made from clothesline and clothes-pins.

So cute!

And do you see those two little bride-and-groom strawberries below?

Yeah, Matt totally made the groom one (after Petrice showed him how).

I'm telling you, my man has serious culinary talent.

And, since I didn't get to give a speech at the wedding luncheon, I just want to say this:


You are the best friend a girl could ask for. You have been there for me through thick and thin, through good and bad, through late nights and early mornings and boys and school and teaching and everything--and it has meant so much to me. I'm so happy that you have found Sam, and that he is worthy of you in every way. I was so glad that we could be a part of your big day, and I'm even more glad that we'll continue to be a part of your life together. I love you so much, and I'm so proud of everything you have become. May your marriage be full of joy and triumph, growth and love--

Your best friend forever,



  1. I just love Kayla too! I am so happy for her and so glad you posted so many lovely pictures from her special day.

  2. Kayla is pretty awesome! I'm sure she is glad to have you as such a great friend as well. You totally took better pictures than me. I'm so glad that everything turned out so great (and delicious).

  3. Kayla couldn't have asked for a better friend all these years. You literally have grown up together and shared so much. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. I'm glad you and Matt will still be in Kayla and Sam's lives. Thank you.
