On Saturday we mailed a little package to a sweet little lady asked her to be our flower girl! You may have remembered reading my blog from Labor Day weekend where we spent the weekend with our friends who were up from the south. After that weekend Jack and I knew that Gracelyn would be the perfect flower girl. She is sweet + sassy and just the little diva to make the day complete. I first asked permission form her parents if Gracelyn could be our flower girl. We were ecstatic when they said yes!
I wanted something that I could easily mail to her because I knew I wasn't going to see her. I originally searched and search to try and find the Shopkinz Roxy Ring. When they were here visiting Gracelyn mentioned how she really wanted that one, but it is a limited edition. I couldn't find it anywhere except eBay and it was an astronomically high price. So I moved on from that idea. I loved the idea of sending her a book, but the one I was originally going to go with I thought may have been a little too young for her, she is 7 years old. I found this book through a fellow blogger, Meg over at Borrowed Heaven.

I wrapped it in some fancy paper and tied with a bow. For those of you who ever received a gift from me it more than likely had a ribbon on it. I got a pink flower to go with it and hand wrote a note to her.
I got this sweet picture from her mom. I think her smile says it all! We are so excited that she will be be a part of our special day! :)
Did you have a flower girl? How did you ask?
We will also be having a ring bearer, Jack's God son who will be just over two on our wedding day. I have a special gift for him too, but just haven't gotten it to him just yet! Stay tuned for that :)
