There’s no other way to describe how I feel after the wonderful baby shower thrown for me by my girlfriends in NC! It was a perfect day with so many thoughtful, sweet details – the little bowties on the onesies for a garland, the mini foods brunch (tiny pancakes!), the rum punch & bucket of Izzes (yes, we know which ones were for me)… and of course, the wonderful guests who came to shower me and Baby Boy with love. I don’t know if this baby knows how lucky he is to already be so loved, but he will soon! I don’t think I can really do justice to explain how grateful I feel to be surrounded by such loving friends and family as I’ve gone through my pregnancy and especially today, with so many of them there present (or sending their thoughts!), so I’ll just turn it over to some photos. Thank you, Anne & Kate, for being such amazing hostesses!
The cake was made by my friend Abbie, who also did my mom’s retirement apple cupcakes and Matt’s 30th birthday cake.
I loved that there was such a mix of people from all different parts of my life there – my mom & sister, and mom-in-law and sister-in-law, Winos, residency friends, friends from my current job & my former job, dance trance friends and internet-turned-real-life friends. It is a testament to the wonderful women I surround myself with that they all seemed to mix and get along so great! (Or else it’s a testament to Anne’s rum punch. Either are viable theories.)
