Something new...

I have some fun news! lots of you probably saw this on my facebook already but for those who didn't and to give a little more insight to it, I figured I'd blog it too.
My dear friend Alison is a wedding coordinator among all the other awesome things she is.
Like a Godly wife and mother, and my dear dear friend.
She has many talents, and has been using them coupled with her love of weddings to great success.
Naturally being friends we eventually discovered our shared love of all things wedding related.
To what does all this lead aside from I love my friend?
Well, Alison asked me to join her team as Creative Director!
You can read about it here on her blog,
And be sure to visit her web site as well.
One & Only Events
I'm really looking forward to having a creative outlet for my party planning/craft loving brain.
I guess that's all for now...

Edited to add:
Ok, I think my brain was still waking up this morning cause I forgot a major part of the story and kind of the whole reason I was blogging about it anyway!
For the past several months I've been praying and asking God to show me or lead me to a way I can use my creative skills and urges (I really do get urges to create something!) for a purpose.
Not just for personal benefit.
I'm not much of an entrepreneur so while the whole Etsy world is appealing it always sounds like too much work in the long run and isn't my thing. At least not at this point in my life.
And while I love making things for people, birthdays and Christmas etc...
Well it just wasn't enough.
And I love doing wedding things! I got to help with both my sister's weddings in the past two years and also a dear friend's as well and about now was starting to miss all that.
There's just something so special and exciting about helping people prepare for their wedding day.
So when Alison asked me I was thrilled! I did pray a little more intently about it before saying yes but the whole thing was an answer to my months of prayer. :)
So thanks once again Father for giving me a desire of my heart.
And that's what I really wanted to share with you all! sorry my brain was being lame earlier.

I'm so thrilled about this! Don't you just love how God gives us interests and passions that one day clicks into place with things we never dreamed of? :)

Awww....I'm just now reading this. Thank you so much for the sweet words. I am still so excited about your joining my team. Not sure how you feel about it now that you are drowning in taffeta ;), but I hope you are still excited too! So much to look forward to in June... We will have to plan a girl day once Nathan gets back! :)
