One of my dearest friends, who loves me even when I’m being a complete pain in her side, was married to her soulmate today. Her journey hasn’t been an easy one in life, but she’s always overcome and shown amazing strength and grace even during her roughtest time. Mom to 4 awesome kiddos (2 sweet, brilliant girls and 2 sweet, brilliant little boys.) she is a force to be reckoned with.

Lauren is who performed my wedding to Mark, never doubted I’d marry that boy I was so determined to be with. She also listened (And still does) listen to me rant when things just feel like they’re stacking on top of me. It’s rare she loses her temper- at least to the outside world, but she is every bit the mama bear, protective wife, loving friend, everyone should have.

I haven’t gotten to meet her husband yet- everytime I think Mark and I might have free time- Lauren and her little ones or her hubby haven’t had free time. Schedules here don’t like to match up. But, I have 0 doubt in his commitment to her or the kids he’s lovingly taken to. I have a feeling he seems himself a lot like my Dad Rick, not a step parent, but the parent who stepped up.

I can’t wait to see the life they build together and wish them all the blessings in the world.
