To say this past year of transitioning (3 kids, at home, processing loss, etc) has been rough is an understatement, but this is the one friend who has literally stood by my side. She has allowed me to pour my hear out and be vulnerable, she listens, she encourages, she includes. When I read this scripture, "You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit" I always think of Lindsay, she is really so beautiful on the inside and out, she just carries herself in such a graceful way, and I think anyone who meets her thinks the same thing.
I actually meet Lindsay a few years ago because I cleaned her teeth, so fun! She made an impression and memory with me right away (oh and she is a twin). I am so glad the Lord had our paths cross, both her and her husband are so special to our family.
She already has one precious little 2 year old boy and is now expecting a little girl in December. I was more than excited to throw a baby shower for her! Oh and I had some amazing help from Ashley who is like the best baker (next to my BFF Sarah) I know. Not to mention it was at the most beautiful home, so it was very easy to make everything look nice!
I re-used some of the items from Sarah's 1st birthday party, and created lindsay's shower to be more of an elegant farmhouse theme. I got the idea from this blog
