Flower Girl Dreams Come True

A few years ago, we went to a wedding. One of Josh's good friends, Nolan, was getting married in Kentucky. Emma was 2 years old at the time. At the reception, she was in awe of the flower girl. You could just see the wonder in her eyes... You could see her thinking, "How did this little girl get to be so lucky to wear this beautiful dress and be the center of attention (sort of)?" That day, "flower girl envy" was born. We have been hoping since then that one of our friends or family members would get married and ask her to be the flower girl. As the first girl grandchild on both sides, I got the chance to be the flower girl in several weddings. It's definitely an experience I hope every little girls gets to have sometime. Finally, Emma's chance came this past September when my cousin Sarah got married. Emma loved her special day. I was tickled pink to see another little girl about 2 years old following her around with that same wonder in her eyes that I noticed a few years ago...
