I love when prayers are answered. Last weekend I was reminded of just how faithful God is.
I went to LA for my bestie Lydia's baby shower. First of all, it was the best baby shower idea ever. It was a pool party! Now I'll admit, going to a pool party 4 months after delivering twins is more than unnerving. It's especially frightening because it was with a bunch of LA moms who also just popped out babies but their bodies are already back in shape like they are Kim Kardashian with a celebrity trainer, a nutritionist, and a dermatologist sent straight from heaven. But whatever. Life is too short to miss out on beautiful moments due to insecurity. So I ordered a new one piece on Amazon and had it shipped out to LA the day before I got there. Then I strutted out in my one-piece like Naomi Campbell closing a Dolce & Gabbana show!
So back to the shower. It was gorgeous and perfect. There were so many sweet little details like one-of-a-kind flower arrangements, Mediterranean cuisine, and sarongs as a take home present for everyone who attended. Oh and to top it off, each sarong was tied with a home made tag and a little surfer guy figurine bc Lydia and her husband Brody both love to surf. It was just too sweet.
I started this blog out with the reminder of God's faithfulness. While I was in LA, my mind went back to 2012, the year Lydia and I decided to get serious about praying for our husbands. We went deep in prayer and began to outline the characteristics we wanted to see in a husband. Well now here we are, 6 years later and we both have amazing husbands and she's about to be a mommy! I can't wait to meet her son and spoil him. My heart is overflowing with gratitude. God is faithful to his promises and I'm about to have a new nephew.
