Say Yes to the Dress

My dress came in! I went to the store to check to be sure that the dress is the one I ordered and the size I ordered. It was so fun to try on MY dress. I had tried the same style on several times as I was searching for the dress I wanted but this time it was the one I will actually wear 10 months and 2 days from now! Sorry... no pics ;)

Zionsville's Fall Festival

I had the opportunity to relive a childhood memory this weekend. My mom mentioned to me that she would be taking part in our town's annual Fall Festival Parade. Her church is celebrating its 175th anniversary and celebrated by creating a float that is a replica of what the church looks like. Of course when she mentioned this I jumped at the chance to attend the parade. I had not been in years but thought it would be so much fun.

Here is what the church ended up looking like.

The weather was beautiful and I enjoyed the parade with Brandon and Brandi. (Thanks Brandi for taking the picture!)

What a Beautiful Ride

Welcome to my blog! I have been wanting to blog for a while now, but have been too busy to get it started up.

The name for the blog was difficult to come up with, but I decided on What a Beautiful Ride. It is inspired by a song by Gary Allan called Life Ain't Always Beautiful. The lyrics tell a story about how the struggles in life make us who we are today. The song tells me that we can choose to focus on the struggles or we can be thankful for all of the blessings in life. I have many things in my life to be thankful for and hope to share them with you through this blog. Thanks for reading!
