Shower Me with Your Love

Preparing to arrive at the shower

The family shower this past weekend was phenomenal.  Truly phenomenal.  It far exceeded any expectations I could have possibly had.  I am still overwhelmed by the outpouring of love shown to me, Tim and our growing family.

My aunts and cousins came from all over- New Jersey, Chicago, Maryland and all points in between.  It has been probably a decade since we had all been together, and that was at a funeral.  It is such a blessing to be able to come together for something so wonderful.

My hometown friends, Lori F and AmyG were even able to come.  It was so great seeing the both of them!


The shower was given by my mother and when I tell you she has been planning this event her whole life since last October, I am not at all exaggerating.  And it showed.  She left no detail unchecked.  Everything was done with lots of thought.

Let them eat cake!

The food, the cake, the games, the gifts.  Heck, even the bottled water was personalized with my name.  It was perfect.

I love a clean baby!

The weather in Anytown was perfect.  Absolutely perfect!  Which is a good thing, because part of our activities took us outside.  We made quite a scene on the lawn!

At the end of the day, I had to sit back and think of how blessed this baby is.  Not because of all of the generous gifts that were given, but because of all of the genuine love and excitement that everyone has for her arrival.

I am so thankful for this baby and for the family and friends that were present to help celebrate.

    Loved the photos on FB but one question, why is it that your mom is never in the pictures? Looks like she threw you a great party!

    Mommy is not too keen on having her face on the innanets.
