today is the release day for my friend melanie‘s latest book, Nobody’s Cuter than You! i’m so thrilled for her!  i’ve loved each of her three releases but this one might just have been my favorite. last weekend i read it as i flew to & from dallas for hope spoken. i was choked up several times having just spent some time with precious friends & feeling loved.

melanie honors & celebrates the relationships in her life. i love this about her. her daughter, her hubby & her friends. melanie has a way of making special people feel special. valued. cherished. honored. i pray i can become that type of mama. that type of wife. and that kinda friend.

if as soon as you read the title to her book you thought immediately of your high school bestie, or your “i hope you never move away from me” neighbor or your new found friend that loves you well, i highly encourage you to snatch up this sweet read. you’ll laugh & you’ll cry. perhaps simultaneously.


i went through some files to create a little collage to celebrate just a few of the special friends in my life. this of course made me get all teary as landslide began to play on my pandora. these friends & more, you guys make me feel cute on the crappy days as well as the fun ones. i love each of you dearly!

to jill youngblood, corrie, natalie, wynne, linda & abby, ashley & courtney, jeanne, peach, jill johnson, rachel & my joycie….thank you for loving me well…nobody’s cuter than you!!

i just ordered her graduation….from college….announcements which is so weird being that it was just yesterday when i ordered her high school graduation announcements. no joke.

people. it’s all i can do to not just bawl all over the keyboard with JOY & PRIDE in and for Savannah!!! gah!!!

for any of you guys that are single mamas, or were single mamas for any amount of time, i think you can relate to the feeling of OHMYGOSHSHEDIDIT!!!!! i want to blog in length about all the feelings (well maybe just a few of the feelings) but when i previewed both my girls announcements this morning i just couldn’t wait another moment to share the wording above.

these next several weeks are so full of exciting memory makers for my two graduates!!

i’ll be posting soon & sharing about Emily’s accomplishments too!!! BIG exciting announcement for Emily!!

i wanted to acknowledge both of them separately so i’ll start with a quick shout out to big sissy.

& friends, consider yourself warned. the next several weeks will have a few walks down memory lane as well as an abundance of shout outs to my girls!!
