Today I celebrated the upcoming arrival of my son with an wonderful group of women, and it was amazing!
My mom and sister offered to throw me a shower months ago, and although I got to design the invitations (a random hobby of mine) pretty much everything was a surprise! My mom thoroughly enjoys keeping things from me in this way. :) As usual, though, they completely outdid themselves and put together a celebration that was totally my style!
The decorations, and there were many, were SUPER cute. The theme was PNW/Woodland Creatures, like my nursery back in Texas. A little bit of home here in my home state of Oregon! My mom and sister are SO crafty. ♡ And also on display was a piece my dad built for Wesley. A few months ago I was kidding around asking what he was going to build for his grandson (since my dad made an amazing marquee T for our wedding that we now display in our house) and of course he set to work making this special piece! He designed it on the computer and then cut and painted each piece. I love my talented Daddy and the special creations he comes up with!
The snacks were tasty, and even they contained thoughtful touches, specifically the rainbow fruit skewers to celebrate my rainbow baby (I had to swallow a lump in my throat more than once looking at those!) The hedgehog cheeseball, raindrop cookies and acorn treats (from Linda!) were super cute too!
Honestly, it was all so perfect. To be loved and supported by such a fantastic group of women is really special, and as I sit here in my childhood room with my baby happily kicking me in the ribs, I am left feeling very humbled, grateful and teary-eyed with joy!
To everyone who made today so special, both in person and in spirit, thank you. From the bottom of my heart. ♡ ♡ ♡
