Randomness: Weddings of 2013, treatment & finale!

Long time, no write :(
I'm so sorry I've been absent for awhile, but I'm back!
I've been busy, busy!
One of my best friends got married this past Saturday and I was her maid of honor.
We've been friends since 3rd grade. Crazy, huh?!
I'm so happy for her & feel honored to be a part of her beautiful day!
She was gorgeous AND although it was very hot (outdoor wedding), it didn't rain!!
It was a beautiful ceremony focused on Christ being the foundation of a marriage.
Now the happy couple are on their "mini-moon" and I can recoup from the festivities.
I would never let Lyme Disease get in the way of a beautiful union like 2 of my best friends' weddings the past couple months!
Here are a few pictures from this weekend...
 Getting my hair done!
 Viola! Isn't that a cool hairstyle?!

Not only have I been busy with Mindy's wedding, I have continued my IV treatments.
It has continued to be rough because of the dying of bacteria (Herxhiemer reaction), but luckily, I have seen the fruits of this not-so fun treatment protocol.
I went to the doctor a few weeks ago and for the first time in a long time...drum roll please... we can see some improvement! It wasn't a huge improvement, but it's a few rays of light coming through the end of the tunnel. I've only been on IV for a month & a half so that's pretty good...I'll take it!
Hopefully, I'll be able to make even more progress so I won't have to have this lovely (not) PICC line for 6 months, but I guess if that's what it takes, I'll have to tough it out.
Also, our gofundme fundraiser to help pay for this treatment (not covered by insurance) is going really well! Although we have not met our goal, we can feel God providing! If you don't mind, please keep me in your prayers for both healing & finances...thank you so much!
Last but not least, I started reading a new book titled, Red Letter Revolution. Woa-it's really good! So good that I've had to put off my finale post of Following in Your Footsteps series. There is too much good stuff that has opened my eyes even more to following in Christ's footsteps. So get ready, the next post will be the last post of the series (hopefully tomorrow)!
