  8. Hi Laura!

    I stumbled across your exciting news and website on Young Ladies Christian Fellowship. Congratulations to both of you!

    It is such an encouragement to me to see another likeminded sister wearing skirts! (By the way where do you find yours?)

    (I attended EXCEL 17 with you a few years back!)

  9. Hey Sarah!
    Yes, I remember you! Thanks so much for your sweet note! Oh wow, where to find skirts?! It all depends…a lot of mine come from Kohls, Walmart and thrift stores actually. Now that I’m married I don’t live near a Kohls and I don’t know the good second hand stores so it’s a lot harder! :)

    It was so good to hear from you!
    Your sister in Christ,
