Girl gets brooches

Boy proposes to Girl.
Girl says yes.
Boy goes to war.
Girl plans a wedding.
Girl asks for help.
Girl gets brooches.

I anxiously check the mail every day.
Every day.
I am not exaggerating.
I think my poor mail man is afraid of me, because he doesn't usually even make it all the way to the mail box before I am riffling through the mail, looking for small packages that MIGHT contain another brooch for my bouquet.

A few days ago, I left for work and noticed a white envelope in the mail box.
After closer examination I realized it was an unexpected brooch! Two actually!!

A friend of mine from high school, Stacey, saw one of my posts on facebook about collecting brooches and mentioned that she had two that would be perfect.

I attended 3 high schools growing up. My family moved several times during that period of my life. The last high school I ended up at was here in Southern California. Valley Christian High School. I loved being at a private school. I loved the classes, and the teachers, and the fact that Jesus was in the curriculum. But not all of the kids were nice. Some were kind of mean. Stacey was always such a sweet girl, and while we weren't super close in high school, we've reconnected through facebook and I am so excited to add her brooches to my bouquet!



Thanks Stacey! These will be perfect :)
