"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Weddings, Stamina, and All That Stuff

My friend, Emily, recently got hitched. There is so much work that goes into planning a wedding! There is the dress, the venues, the crazy families, the food, the weather, the decorations, the music, the wedding video, the invitations, the photography...and more, which can be so overwhelming! Em stuck it out, though, because she's got stamina. She was such a trooper! Well, I helped her out a little bit by making nine (count them--nine!) bridesmaid necklaces:

They were fun, collage-y, and all different...which is a direct reflection of Em. This might be a fun project to do for yourself and a couple of friends, but I do not recommend making nine necklaces at once. That is, unless you want to spend your whole life making them. I'm pretty sure I aged three years while I was assembling them in my basement. However, it was a minimal sacrifice to make for good friends.

We're so happy for Em and Chris! Congratulations, you two, and here's to a future full of happiness!

What kinds of things to you do for good friends? Answer their phone calls at four in the morning? Drive hundreds of miles to visit them? Keep in touch on a regular basis? I'd love to know!
