first wedding gift

On Friday evening I attended a very special event for a very special person (who also happens to be my junior bridesmaid!). 
Sweet S has been a part of my life for almost 10 wonderful years. I very vividly remember the first time I ever babysat for her when she was only 5 months old. She has grown into a very talented, intelligent, and compassionate young lady and I cannot wait to see what her future holds. 
On Friday, S's art was featured at a local studio and I showed up and suprised her! The look on her face was priceless and I am so very glad I was able to make the trip and view all of her wonderful pieces. The girl is talented!

When I arrived, my eyes immediately gravitated toward a painting of a boot but I gave it little thought after spotting a red dot, indicating it had been sold. I admired the boot, but notice the title of the piece, moving around the room to look at everything else. A few minutes later I asked J, S's mom, to get a picture of S and I. She strategically placed us in front of the cowboy boot and made a comment about it. At this point I turned around and read the placard: "LORI'S WEDDING BOOT". S then told me it was her wedding gift to me. My sweet girl. I was very excited and cannot wait to hang it up in our house after the wedding! 

I also purchased these little guys to hang in the kitchen. Love!
