| She'll Be His & He'll Be Hers...and We'll Party! |

I am excited to see February just around the corner...because that means March is THAT MUCH CLOSER.

In March, she'll be his and he'll be hers....and we'll party! 

Matt's sister, Naomi, is getting married to Ivo.  I was honored not only to be asked to be in the bridal party but also to design their wedding invitation and wedding program for the ceremony.

Naomi is not only gorgeous, she's a fiery woman of God; she's smart, savvy and an amazing business woman.  Asides the fact that her legs probably come up to my bust line (not jealous at all *grin*) she's had her own massage therapy clinic for years.  Recently, she invested herself into establishing and running a non-profit organization and now she has developed her own consulting business. She's the whole package...and it was going to take someone special to keep up with her.    

It was almost a year ago when I said to her, "when you're ready to let it all go, when there is room for someone to come in, then God will have a chance...." And somehow, as we all know, when we just lay our stuff down - even if that means we have nothing on our plates - God has a way of moving in and bringing us THE BEST gift....enter, Ivo.

It was shortly after than that Naomi met Ivo, and as they say, "it's was a done deal."

Ivo is the perfect complement to Naomi, and Naomi is the perfect complement to Ivo.  They strengthen each other and are better together than apart.  Ivo's life is a story full of God's faithfulness and goodness....making him the strong, courageous yet gentle man he is today.  Its so good, I have goose bumps!

As for keeping up with her?  Well, Ivo's a martial arts trainer and kite surfer....he can keep up with her no problem.  As a matter of fact, they got engaged after skydiving....how's that for keeping up?!?!

I'll be sure to share the finished version of the program after the wedding....so stay tuned for that and pictures of the big day.

I'm off to get my run on...this bridesmaid is on the countdown to tone up before wedding day.

Have a great Tuesday.
