jayemmtee Tonight we surprised Erica & Noah with a shower in celebration of baby Judah (their faces were priceless! ). And I couldn't help but feel like all of us were showered too. This room was filled with so much love and God was so obviously present. I'm so proud to walk alongside this tribe. I wish everyone could experience a night like tonight because man oh man, it was GOOD.
Thank you to everyone who helped make The Perry Party a success! We love you @perryspice @noahperry!

jayemmtee On this day 15 years ago, two chicks with curly hair and braces came up to me and asked if I wanted to have a sleepover. I don't know why I said yes to these two crazy strangers but I'm so glad I did. We stayed up all night giggling, talking about boys, telling each other secrets, and all of that girly stuff. It was the beginning of an epic friendship and those two girls became two of the most important people in my life. Stella Tatiana and Suzanna Marie --- you two make my life more colorful. You're there beside me in the midst of my deepest hurts and you're dancing with me during my highest highs. All of my best (and funniest) memories include y'all. We've spent over half of our lives together and I literally can't imagine a life without my two bestest friends. How did I get so lucky? Happy 15th Anniversary, amigas! Love you lots! #PTA #familia 1w

jayemmtee You guys! Today was the best day.
Let me tell you about my friends, The Perrys, because WHOA. Erica + Noah are expecting baby Judah this September. Instead of showering the Perrys with gifts for their first-born child, they insisted that we shower the children at the Next Step Shelter, a place very close to their hearts (and mine!).
So today we did just that.
We spent our Saturday serving up food and distributing gifts to each child at the shelter. Their faces were priceless and the love that the Perrys have is contagious.
Erica + Noah: THANK YOU for trusting us to be a part of your journey and thank you for loving these kids even when life gets messy. You're already the best parents.
Baby Judah is one lucky dude.

jayemmtee The closer you get, the closer you get. // I had the pleasure of spending my morning with a group of inspiring, courageous women. Lots of laughs, lots of tears, all the feels knocking down walls left and right. I don't know how I got lucky enough to be in this room, with these people, but man oh man I'm so grateful. Heart is full. #imaginehi

jayemmtee This little dude hangin' on my leg was one of 5 kids who smiled big, ran, and leaped onto me as soon as I stepped out of my car tonight at the Next Step Shelter. Day made.

  •   jayemmtee Man oh man @gaynorlubo I've been thinking the same thing! That + my church community here. My heart and spirit have changed for sure.

jayemmtee May we never lose our wonder. So many things going on in this moment. So many people doing exactly what they are called to do.
Surround yourself with these people. The dreamers. The doers. The believers.
