We participated in a 40th birthday surprise party this week for the beautiful woman pictured above. I took around 50 pictures of the gathering on Tuesday night, so it was rather difficult to narrow down my favorites--and trust me, these still aren't all of them by any means!! Not only did we surprise her with the party itself, but her husband asked all of us to come prepared with a "Roast or Toast" to read. She was truly touched by it all, and I'm looking forward to putting all of the words and party pictures into a memorable scrapbook for her~
Most of the lovely ladies in our small group - I love each one of them dearly and am thankful for the unique friendship I have with each one of them! They each have very unique, sweet ways of encouraging others, myself included, and I am blessed to know them during these years~
My very handsome husband with Dr. Party Palace himself~
Me and Mrs. Party Palace - I managed to get through my "toast" without tears, but being as sentimental as I am and so thankful for our friendship, it wasn't easy!
Fellow scrapbooker, picture-taker, and dear friend!
Me and my love
"I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace..." (Philippians 1:3-7a)
