Friday Letters

Dear God thank-you for providing the most bizarre way's for Nicole + I to hang out. We really like that you love our friendship as much as we do ; ) --Nicole and Tyler conveniently had a 4 hour lay over in Atlanta on their way to Memphis from their honeymoon so of course Adam and I drove out to have dinner with them! It was such a sweet time of talking about all things wedding and marriage (duh) and just made me SO thankful for their friendship.

Dear student teaching I wish you would hurry up and be over. I love my kiddos but I do not like writing 5 page lesson plans that will never be used in the real world.

Dear Spring weather you rock. 75 and sunny this weekend? Heck.yes.

Dear graduation you can hurry up.. thanks!

Dear (future) hubby you are so patient and kind and I wish I was as cool as you. I still can't believe you are MINE. I'm very lucky!

Dear readers  y'all have been so so great lately and I just want to thank y'all!! I have received so many encouraging e-mails lately from girls who just want to chat about life and love and relationships and it just makes me so happy!!! [P.S. Have y'all "liked" Southern Simplicity on Facebook?! You totally should.]


Happy Friday Lovelies!! xO


  1. I LOVE reading your blog because you and I are in similar spots in our lives. I also love seeing that my college is not the only one who makes future teachers write lengthy lesson plans that no teacher really ever uses! Keep blogging cause I am a loyal follower! (I try to blog myself but life is too crazy)


  2. I love how friendship just brings so much joy to the heart. A sweet grace from a loving God!
    Love reading your sweet and honest blog!

  3. Those lesson plans are the devil. I mean it's good practice to really THINK about how you're going to teach but come on. My lesson plans down are so short, I just put down a few things so I'll know what I'm doing and bam it's done. Your wedding day will be here SO SOON! :) And waiting patiently is no girl's best quality, just be grateful *which I know you are* that you have a beautiful ring to look at while I stare at a naked finger. ;)

  4. I hope student teaching goes by quickyl for you! If it makes you feel better, my lesson plans are three pages long and I totally use them lol.

  5. Aw looks like you and your friends had such a lovely time together!! And yes- the weather is going to be SO lovely in the South this weekend! I can't wait! :-) Spring is finally on its way!

    xoxo Miss ALK
