May 10, 1989

On May 10, 1989, my life changed forever.  God blessed me with the most amazing little sister, and also a best friend

No one knows me or understands me like she does.  Our bond is indescribable and my only wish is for our own (future) children to share a bond like ours. 
She is my Sister Puffin

There's nothing so wonderful as having a sister...and I'm blessed with three of the greatest ones out there.  Yes, God did in deed spoil me when he gave me my sisters.  
I thank Him for it every day.

Happy 22nd Birthday, Alaka!
I love you to the Moon & back!

Your Sister Puffin
Mrs. D

Oh....and if you feel so inclined, you can check out her blog, Love Always, Alaka.  I'm sure she'd love to hear from you.  :)

Kim's Charleston Bachelorette Party

The last weekend of April I had the pleasure of flying to Charleston, South Carolina (my favorite city in the United States) to celebrate (one of) Kim's last weekends as a single lady.  :)  IT.WAS.A.BLAST!!!!

We had two days to spend relaxing on the beach and soaking up the low country lifestyle...and then a super fun night out on Saturday night! 

We had brunch at Toast!

Had a little surprise shower for our Bride.  :)

Ready for Saturday night!

We all enjoyed a delicious dinner at Magnolia, a Charleston favorite.

Then...it was time for the hat to make it's appearance.
Tradition, you know.

We all had A LOT of FUN...

...Our Bride included.  :) 

It really was a whirl wind trip.  If you blinked...you missed it!  I wish I could transport myself back to Charleston right this very second.  I suppose I'll just keep wishing. 

Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day.  I had the privilege of attending my Sister Puffin's Graduation from the University of Kentucky yesterday and I must say, I was overcome with emotion.  Joy, awe, pride.  I'll save that post for another day.
