The Bride and Her Maidens

Show me your friends, and I will tell you the kind of person you are.
I had the privilege of being a bridesmaid for my friend this past weekend. As I told her, I could not have done this for just anyone; but I wholeheartedly believe their union was a match made in Heaven. It was such a joy and blessing to be a witness to God's awesomeness in her [and her husband's!] life. All around the wedding was spectacular. Great ceremony, great music, great food, great people, great time. It was truly a wonderful way to kick off this year's wedding season. (=
A couple of pictures below, including all her maidens in our aso ebi during the traditional engagement.

I just had to add this picture. So awesome.

15-Minute Break

"The people around you will take note if you work hard and work smart. They will also take note if you don’t." -Lowell Taub

These photos are from a fashion show at the University of Pennsylvania, as I waited to showcase. My lovely friend, Mo, rode up to Philadelphia with me at [literally] the very last minute. I am so grateful for great spirited people such as her in my life. I took some pictures of her [on her phone], that are quite the entertainment. But she wouldn't allow me to post any of them as she called it blackmail. It really aren't though if ask me. 
Have a lovely week, all. 

Mo and I!!
