BC: Made with Love by Amanda
FC: BEST FRIENDS
1: Dear Michele, When thinking about what to get you for your birthday, I had the idea of making a scrapbook of sorts. I have throughly enjoyed "reliving" our friendship. To see how God used Chris Tomlin to bring us together and how our relationship has just grown has been neat. Some of the pictures are funny to look at, some made me cringe, others brought a tear to my eye. You are such an amazing friend and I am so blessed to call you my best friend. I look forward to many more years of friendship and pictures. Happy Birthday Friend. Love you- Amanda
2: In the name of "love"...
3: It has been so much fun having you as my "partner in crime". I have so enjoyed all our schemes and plans to meet "our man". (The worship concerts were great too)
4: El Salvador Mission Trip August 2005
5: Traveling to El Salvador was a life changing experience for me. I don't think I would have gone without you. I pray we will be able to do it again in the future!!
6: AUSTIN TEXAS FEBRUARY 2006
7: This was our first trip. Of course a certain man brought us to Austin but we did so much more there than just "stalk" him. We ate great BBQ, drove around in a very conspicuous white jeep, hungout with the Moore family, and had lots of laughs!! These are the times we will always remember!!
8: Random Fun!!!
9: You and I can always have fun together!! From pumpkin picking and carving to gingerbread houses and bonfires! The middle picture is from the Christmas you and your family opened your house to me when my family was away! I am blessed by you and your family!!
10: Nashville, TN April 2007
11: How exciting was it to go to Nashville for the Dove Awards. It was a blast be part of the whole week there as well as experiencing Nashville. And who will ever forget the Loveless Cafe! Again there is no one I would have rather experienced this with!!
14: If there was a new exciting restaurant to try I always knew who to go to!! From mac and cheese to fondue we sure broke bread at some awesome places!!
15: "Friends are God's way of taking care of us."
17: When you invited me to crop at the cabin the first time I never knew was a blessing scrapbooking would be to me!! It has been such a refreshing time with friends!! I have also enjoyed the times you and have have gotten away to scrapbook!!
19: I cannot thank you enough for your support throughout the wedding planning. You helped me when I was stressed, celebrated with me, calmed me down and shared in all the excitement. Thank you!! | I am truly honored that you painted "Breaking Through" for Jarrod and I as a wedding gift! We look at it daily as it hangs over our bed!! I will treasure it forever!!
20: "Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same."
21: Michele, It was in 2002 when I was working for the Szott's that Andrea told me about this talented girl named Michele. She said "You two would be great friends". I believe that was a prophetic statement! It was not till 2004 after my depression that we actually met. Early on I think we both knew we would be fast friends. We have had so many fun adventures together!! I cherish each one and loved taking the time to "re-live" them in this scrapbook. I am so thankful that even though we live in different states now we have remained best friends. When ever something exciting happens I cant wait to call you, whenever something tough happens I feel the need to call you!! You have supported me through so much and I am blessed to have you by my side as my best friend!! Please know I am always there cheering you on and praying for you!!May we continue to add to the memories in the years to come!! I love you friend!!- Amanda
