Having friends that are getting married, have babies, and doing the whole real-world thing right now, is amazing! I'm so glad I was able to be a part of a friend from Italy, Jackie's bachelorette weekend. She has found someone amazing to share the rest of her life with and although I have yet to meet due to distance, I can tell he makes her happy and I could not be more excited for her!
As my first experience with a bachelorette party, I was intrigued to see how this would go.. would it be male stripers, penis shaped things, and a lot of alcohol. (Similar to something I would see on MTV!?) I was thrilled to find out it was little more low-key, yet still just as fun. A huge congrats, thanks, and job well done to the Bride-to-be's sister, Kayte :) She did a wonderful job, from booking a house on the beach, to the decor, food and drinks, and fun gifts!! What a lovely sister!!
I am super excited for the wedding... Probably not as excited and ready as Jackie is though!! Hurry up September 24th — LOVE YOU JACKIE!!

|A storm hit us hard towards the end of our relaxing beach day :(|
|It was a little frightening as we scrambled off the beach to head back to the house....|
|at the same time, it was so beautiful I had to stop to snap pictures!|

|welcome to your party Jackie!|
|Another fun little game — we had to kiss him blind folded and sign next to our kiss!|
|Lovely Italy ladies, Danielle and Makaela gave Jackie a panty line with an adorable little poem!|
It was one of my favorite gifts!! Cute idea girls :)
|and of course there was dancing... I swear we all were and not just Jackie and her best friend! haha|
