    oh Julie, nothing will keep this treasured friendship apart…not even the distance. Best of luck to Denise and her family as she heads to Texas. What a sweet video.

    This is just the cutest party ever! Even though it’s sort of a sad occasion, you still know how to put together a nice going away party!

    This has to be the best party ever! I don’t where in Texas your bestie will live but there is plenty to see and do in the Lone Star State. My oldest daughter lives in McKinney and they love it.

    What an awesome party/tribute to a dear friend! I had tears in my eyes when viewing the video. Remember distance does not impact the heart – today’s technology will play the role that you’re still just down the street from each other!

    From the pictures, you can tell that you put all of your heart into this event! I am sorry that your friend moved, but know that God is with you wherever you are. I think you hit the nail on the head with the last sentiment! 867 miles cannot separate you when you have been friends that long!

    P.S. I am a Tennessean too! I’ve lived here my entire life and love it too!

    What a beautiful memory you gave your friend to remember in the days ahead. Now you’ll have a place to stay when you visit Texas.

    I have a lifelong bestie also. Once we married we didn’t live close to each other for years. Now we are only an hour apart but we still don’t see each other all the time. But talking… oh yes. We do a lot of that. Voxer is a great app for that! 🙂

    I love all of the decorations, but most of all, I love reading about your friendship. One of my favorite blog posts of all time (from any blogger) is the one that described Denise as an Overcomer. I loved reading about the celebration that you and her friends through for her. It made me yearn to be a part of that group! Although you will be over 800 miles apart, your special friendship will stay strong. Thanks for sharing!

    Hello,
    Everything looks amazing! But I have to know where you found the backdrop for pictures. My friends are moving and I would love to have that at their party. Can you share that info?
