My Friend Cassie.

June 18, 2014

It's not every day that you meet someone that shares your first and middle name, especially when it is not a common name. It is even more crazy when you share a nickname like Cassie. Throw in the bizarre way that we met (thank you very much, Instagram!!!) and you have two women that probably would have never met that became two of the best friends.

The first time I met Cassie in person was on my wedding day at the wedding reception. I was so excited to finally meet the girl that flew all the way to Greenville, SC for less than 24 hours. That is a big deal. So there I sat, eating my salad when I feel a tap on the shoulder. I turned around and saw her face and I couldn't get out of my seat fast enough. It was such an amazing feeling to hug someone for the first time but already know you love them like a sister. I still can't describe the unique type of happiness I felt during that moment.

The photo above is the only picture we have together. We talk pretty much every single day and when I notice that I haven't talked to her I instantly want to grab my phone and text her. She's one of the funniest, sweetest, genuine women I've ever met. Her love for the Lord shines through that bright smile and makes one of the warmest souls I've ever known. I'm so thankful that He brought our lives together. We were just two Cassie Lee's living life but now that we know each other, I know that He will do something with this friendship. Something for His glory that we couldn't do alone.

Cassie, get ready for the best day of your life. I hope it is even more than you could possibly imagine because you deserve every bit of it. I'm so happy that I get to be there to witness everything! And hug your neck of course. And definitely take some more photos together because this one photo thing is just not working for me. I can't wait to see you!!!

I'm also doing a little guest post over on Cassie's blog so go check it out!
