Friends are one of God’s sweetest gifts, a girl could possibly be blessed with. And in my opinion, we don’t celebrate this gift enough. At times, it’s not until we need encouragement or help, that we see the true value in friendship. The bond shared between friends, especially girlfriends, is priceless and the love they share adds immeasurable joy to one’s life.
For my bachelorette party, I wanted nothing more than to bask in this blessing: the ladies who have touched my heart and influenced my life, in ways my little words can not adequately glorify. They have been a constant source of encouragement, a wealth of inspiration and beautiful mentors, for a willing heart. They bring a joy to my everyday life, that is rarely surpassed, even in the greatest of occasions. They are the family I have chosen and the aura I desire to surround myself with: they are everything I am and all I hope to become.
If you haven’t discovered already, you will quickly learn pictures are the way I bask in and absorb the present moment: a way to capture and share my heart. And in knowing this, my lovely ladies surprised me with a photo shoot, with the talented Andrew Lukianiuk; a gift to capture the purity in our beautifully kindred connection. To me, a picture is worth more than a 1000 words. It shares a piece of ones heart- a piece of that moment- a piece of simple and pure joy. To me, a photo is a treasure.
I wish to share these treasures with you, today. May it inspire you to count your own blessings, be thankful for your friends and take a moment to treasure their love.
So, if you too share my affection for your girlfriends, I encourage you to get out there and capture that love. Create the perfect keepsake, to forever remind you of the gifts that you’ve been given.
“But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
