Today’s post is all about the birthday girl Amanda 🙂
I met Amanda 3 years ago at a retreat for Pastors Kids (PK). There was a little “store” that the PK’s could purchase snacks & small little souvenirs that I was helping out at & Amanda had her eye on several of the little stuffed animals there. Little did I know that a little over a year later, she & her entire family would be moving to Bloomington-Normal & that her dad would become one of my boss’s while I worked at First Assembly.
I was really looking forward to spending one on one time with Amanda & taking pictures of her! We had a beautiful sunny Saturday, probably the first really warm one of the year & I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Amanda.
We walked around Uptown Normal & talked. Amanda was a good sport & laughed at all my corny jokes 😉 And I got to hear about all her plans for her birthday party she was planning & the art piece she was entering into a festival.
(I think she’s laughing at one of my silly jokes here 😉 )
If you know Amanda, you know she loves her Converse shoes!
She’s such a beautiful young lady.
Amanda also loves running. I asked her to show me how she looks right before it’s time to speed off 🙂
You’re a beautiful & talented young woman Amanda. I know the Lord has special plans for you. I hope you have a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY & that this year is full of fun, adventure & God surprises 🙂
