FC: Cowgirl Up In Nashville | June 9-12, 2011
1: Georgena, Every bride knows that before she walks down the isle to tie the knot with the man of her dreams, a celebration in her honor must be held. Therefore, in your honor, 14 of your closest girls flew/drove to Nashville to celebrate your final days as a single woman. We all know this was a VERY long time coming...so why not saddle up and party for 3 nights with some of the most amazing country music stars ever? I want you to know that I am honored to have someone like you in my life! I cannot wait to be by your side as you become Mrs. Georgena Barnes on October 15, 2011! Here are just a few of the memories we made in Nashville for your bachelorette party. I love you and thank you so much for an awesome weekend that none of us will soon forget!

9: Georgena, I knew from the first moment you were born that you had a mind of your own! I knew in my heart all of the wishes I had in mind for you I want you to be happy with the beautiful woman you have become. Your determination, your gentleness (sometimes!) and your warmth sets you apart from all of the rest. I hope that you are as proud of yourself as I am! The world can really use your wisdom and talents- stay true to yourself and your dreams and feel totally fulfilled in any role you might choose. My greatest wish is that you know you are loved more than anything else in the world! You are blessed to have Ben and I know he loves you as much as I do! Always remember you are a very special person, much like your YiaYia, and I am so very proud to say you are MY daughter! MOM
10: Dearest Georgena, So you want to marry my Ben? Heaven knows how you have impressed me from our first lunch in Iowa City. Yout intelligence, beauty, sincerity, & capacity for love are your strong qualities....not to mention your ability to sleep forever! Cooking, cleaning, and laundry may not be your forte, but that's what good partners are for! Especially when he loves to spoil you! You also know that we love your big Greek family. I appreciate getting another daughter-in-law that I love! Most importantly- you love Ben and he loves you. Never go to bed angry & always have each other's back. Hope we will always be good friends and great family! We welcome you into ours with open arms! Love Your soon to be Mother-in-law, Jayne
