Her appreciation of big hair was inspiring.

Back before Jason and I started looking at moving to Chattanooga, I had discovered a hot pink blog by the name of Ministry So Fabulous. I’ve discussed before what will immediately draw me into a blog:  a funny southern woman who loves Jesus. Well, Amy Beth is all that and more. For months I read her blog, marveling at the ministry she created to help young girls build confidence and find their true worth. The heart, wit, and self-deprecating humor of this woman in Cleveland, Tennessee made a powerful impression on me and I found myself wishing that she and I were friends in real life.

Fast forward to September/October, the decision was made to move to Chattanooga. Imagine my joy when I looked at a map and discovered that Cleveland was a mere thirty minutes from Chatt. I emailed AB asking for her thoughts on living in Chattanooga, secretly hoping all along that this would be start of a beautiful friendship.

And it was.

And bonus? I get to be friends with Cousin Cate as well.

Amy Beth asked me to write a guest post regarding my extensive shower throwing experience. I am beyond honored to be featured on the hot pink blog and you can check it out right here!
