When you love someone as much as I love my sisters you want to do everything you can to make them feel special as often as you can. God has blessed me with the most amazing family and given me two of the best friends a girl could ask for... my sisters. Yesterday was a time to celebrate my sister and bride-to-be TRACY!!!
With the wedding just a little over a month away, Juju and I decided to make sure we help celebrate with Tracy "in style". We threw her a shower with the theme being shoes and asked each of the guests to wear their favorite pair of shoes. It was a fitting theme because one of the most special pieces of Tracy's day will be the incredible shoes TL surprised her with just a few months ago (read about it here). Not only are they her DREAM shoes, TL bought them for her (he thinks of those things all on his own- yes he is a KEEPER!) and they are from her favorite movie, Sex and the City.
(notice my mom's? read about them here)
We found just about everything SHOE related that we possibly could. We did black and white colors (to coordinate with the wedding of course) and everything looked so cute! We even used her special shoes as a decoration.
Shoe cookies for all of the guests-Tracy's was special just for her and BLUE of course!
Probably the best part of all was seeing my sister so happy. She brings joy to the lives of EVERYONE who knows her. She is always thoughtful, writing random and uplifting notes or putting together packages for a special time. She thinks of everyone else first- I think she gets that from my mom. I was so excited that so many wonderful people were able to come and celebrate Tracy with us. I think it says a lot about a person's kindness and character when they have so many friends from all of the different pieces of their life. She had friends from high school (and their moms!), college, work and family. I hope everyone had as much fun as Juju and I did!
Some of the girls in the wedding- three of them drove all the way up from down SOUTH!
I love my sister Tracy more than she will ever know and I was so excited to have a day to celebrate the upcoming wedding with her! Thanks to all of our special guests!
Love you Tracy Jean!
