HAPPY BIRTHDAY SISTER!

Today my sweet sister, Jonna turns 23! I love her more than I could probably express on a blog post. She has been SUCH a role model to me throughout our young lives :) I am posting a photo tribute to her today! Jonna… I am SO blessed to have you as my BIG sis!

Wedding Day RIGHT by my side as Maid of Honor!

party-77 ENGAGEMENT DAY! We are growing up:) Wow. 23 = marriage!

The 23rd year of your life is the YEAR YOU WILL BECOME MRS. KYLE CROSS. I am so excited for you my dearest sister! The words I have for our friendship come from the bible…

“Every time I think of you, I give God thanks!” Philippians 1:3

SPEAKING OF HER WEDDING…. We went bridesmaid dress shopping on Monday night! We found the dress :)

They are really sweet – sweetheart neckline, higher waist, really flattering. She is not doing purple… she is doing this “sailor” blue color with YELLOW sunflowers!

It will be REALLY beautiful and classy. Jonna has ALWAYS been a blue girl… like ALWAYS! I think every one of her dresses for prom was some shade of blue. Ha! I love this dress and think it will be really flattering for everyone :) CHECK! One more thing off her list… she’s doing great!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL SISTER!! I LOVE YOU!

So I read often and don't comment much but I just had to say that I almost picked those same bridesmaid dresses for my wedding! I was going to get them in the coralish color and they are fabulous dresses. Then I saw these and I couldn't resist something with flowers on it for my spring Miami wedding.
