Have you ever seen more glorious 1990s bridesdmaids!? Look at all that floral and that gorgeous bride!
Today’s daily photo comes from the Facebook feed of writer extraordinaire Sophie Hudson. It features a Mississippi bride at her early 1990s wedding. Hudson is on the back row, third from the left.
These would be the bridesmaids’ dresses I write about in Home Is Where My People Are,” Sophie wrote on her blog in February 2015. “And this is a picture of a picture (hence the cropped out flower girl, thanks to my sweet photography skills), but I believe that you can see enough to appreciate the yards upon yards of floral fabric that surrounded Elise on her wedding day.”
Hudson is another blog-to-book success story. Her website, Boo Mama, helped catapult her into a book deal with Tyndale. She has now published three books, including her latest, Giddy Up, Eunice: (Because Women Need Each Other). She has also blogged for the Pioneer Woman and Ann Voskamp.
Description of Giddy Up Eunice
It’s easy for women to focus on what seems to separate us: differences in age, parenting styles, career goals, or maybe even core beliefs about whether leggings can adequately serve as pants (the struggle is real, y’all). The reality, though, is that we have far more in common than we realize, and since Scripture shows us the blessing of friendships across generations, it’s high time we step out of our same-age, same-stage silos. Life is so much better that way.
Sophie Hudson, in the delightfully quirky Southern style her readers have come to know and love, sends out a rallying cry for women everywhere to open our eyes and see the people God has put in our lives—whether they’re behind us, beside us, or in front of us. It is such a gift to love one another, walk with one another, and soak up the blessings that flow across all generations.
Saddle up, sister. This is going to be fun.”
Hudson’s books are funny, delightful and thoughtful Gen X memoirs of growing up in the south in and among evangelical churches and circles. Since I spent several years growing up in parsonages in Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma, I relate to a lot of what she writes. I love her books! And, I really love that photo of 13 bridesmaids from Mississippi! It’s almost too good to be true.
