Is it June Yet?

I am so excited about June and not just because it summertime! I am sooo excited to be apart of a special wedding in June of a dear friend and a dear family. Anyone who knows me knows that one of my most favorite communities that I had the honor to be apart of was my time of teaching in DC. One of those PRECIOUS friendships and relationships came through coaching cheerleading and getting to know incredible ladies, including one of my first captains ~ Kristen. We had an immediate connection and despite lots of hard work, my first year returning to teaching (including new classes!), and her senior year we developed a lovely friendship that has only grown over the years. Her family was such a blessing to me enveloping me through prayers and support during a difficult time, being a wonderful encouragement, and even letting me use their new car for three weeks when my car died. I was so delighted to get the news in October that Kristen and Paul were engaged!  The other day I came across some old pictures of Kristen and I and was delighted to walk down memory lane!  

Cheerleading Times ~ 2007~ Warming up in a library (ironically this was one of our best warm up spots!
Cheer Competition ~ 2nd Place ~2007~ When we were robbed of first place for "illegal stunts" that even we didn't know we could do!
Senior Night 2008
Spirit Week 2008
Prom 2008- Oh this prom... the pick up lines had failed :(
Senior Trip 2008 ~ Oh the pranks and laughter that abounded on this trip! What wonderful memories we made! Ping Pong Pick Up lines started here!
Graduation 2008
A 2010 visit to Maryland brought with it a lovely opportunity to catch up over coffee!
In 2011 I was THRILLED to be able to have a visit from Jean and Kristen in Georgia! We had a great time catching up and I was so excited about Kristen's senior year of college!
I can't wait to see you dear friend and celebrate with you! Is it June yet??!?
I love seeing how God weaves our lives with beautiful friendships over the years. I am soooooo excited to be apart of this wedding! Is it June yet?
