Heads in the clouds

Sometimes all the time, I thank the Lord for glorious SoCal weather that rivals all other precincts',specifically adjacent to sun-washed environs at Venice's sole beachfront boutique hotel,where we cordially convened for complimentary tacos,neighboring recreation,and chitter chatters atop a rooftop lounge o'erlooking the cerulean Pacificin huzzahing honor of Johana's birthday.Happy belated birthday, lovely!!! You mean so much to me, and I'm in awe of all the great things being accomplished in your life of late. Cheers, m'dear, to more rollicking rendezvous to come!

Party proposal poppin'

Behold, 'tis my turn to pop the question these days. Though paling in comparison to the perfectly poppin' proposal, my surreptitious scheme to propose to my bridal party consisted of embellished handcrafted cards accompanied by goodie boxes.
Each lovely lady received one of each upon which her respective name is scribed and stamped in a most personalized manner.
A poem characterized by lilting end rhyme was affectionately penned within on aged notebook paper,
whilst a doily stamped with the gal's name adorned the top.
After perusing the piece of poetry, the cheery chum decoded the highlighted message that read, "Will you be my bridesmaid?" followed by a heart cut out from a vintage novel and my signature.
A reminder leaflet stamped with the impending wedding date was sewn in for good measure.
Thence the amiable recipient peeked within the fabric-taped goodie parcel to chance upon endearing vintage fabric
enveloping a trio of deliciously divine macarons to entice her tastebuds.
I'm so honored they responded with a resounding "yes!" They are each so indubitably beautiful inside and out and have been such significant gifts from the Lord to me (and Alex). Thank you so very much, lovely ladies. God has used you each to greatly encourage and edify me for years to perceive more deeply the love of Christ and I dare not envision being up with there without you eight!

I'm so thankful to the Lord for how He has graciously molded your life and turned your heart towards Him. I am continually in awe of the grace He has poured into your life, Your fervent desire to seek after His will in order to know and love Him more is such a colossal encouragement to me. You are truly a testament to God's grace, mercy, and faithfulness. I'm beyond grateful we get to run this race towards Christ together. Cheers to years aplenty of friendship ahead grounded on our foundation in Christ. I love you so!!!
