My dear church family threw me a party with the theme of Bittersweet. You know? The beautiful fall vine/berry that is red and orange? I've always loved it.
And of course a "Bittersweet" theme is just perfect for a farewell party this time of year. They had orange tablecloths, vases full of bittersweet, and the most beautifully decorated cake with Bittersweet piped on. So pretty! I was totally a crying mess.
Cake decorating skillz by one of my favorite people from church!
My cousin had this darling polka-dot dress and I just had to ask her if she'd mind if I got one! Isn't it the cutest!?
Of course, I had to have the party earrings---the bling, if you will, to kick this outfit up a notch.
It's hard to leave such precious friendship.
But everyone has really sent me off with a lot of love (and photographs, handmade presents, little travel things, chocolates, and more) to carry me forward.
