Let me tell you a story about wedding week. I had a lot to do a few days before the wedding, I had got called in to work early, and everyone needed something from me. I was on the phone with my mom (through the car speakers) when I pulled up at Sam’s. It all came at me at once and I broke down. I started crying in my car because the stress was too much at the moment. I didn’t think anyone could see me. Well next thing I know this little boy, who couldn’t be older that five, was knocking on my window. I rolled the window down and he handed me this flower, then walked back to his parents. The fact he saw me upset and did something about it really humbled me. He had no idea who I was but he knew something was wrong and wanted to help. With all the bad in the world it is a light and I think about it a lot. I have struggled with sharing this because I didn’t want anyone to think I was ungrateful by having a breakdown mid-wedding week. I was also afraid people would think I wanted attention. The thing is this little boy’s action really helped me and I think I needed to be shared. There is good in this world. God’s Love is everywhere, we just have to pay attention.
Let me tell you how full my heart is. I have been overwhelmingly, completely, and totally blessed! I just had the wedding of my dreams. It was classic and everything I ever dreamed it would be. Then I had a fairytale honeymoon in Disney World. And now I get to live with the love of my life and next door to my best friend. I am beyond lucky and I don’t know what I did to deserve such an amazing husband and life. I want to thank everyone who helped these past few weeks and months helping our dreams come true! We are so grateful for everything!
MTV’s spring break coverage forever changed the landscape of #pcb . It went from small locally owned hotels to huge condominiums and hotels. I watched this change every summer of my childhood. I spent my spring breaks here, as a child and as a young adult. I watched as out of towners hung drunkenly out of sunroofs screaming “pcb baby”. Spring breakers have changed the landscape, but now #hurricanemichael has. Many of the local establishments that have been in operation my whole life are hurting and may not come back. I hope that the same people who changed this landscape in the first place and have enjoyed our beautiful white sand beaches will decide to help get these beaches back on their feet. I hope the donate to help the families who lost everything. I hope they will reach out.
