A Baby Shower Tea

My Mother-In-Law, Bonnie, hosted my Baby Shower at her home on Saturday, May 28th. It was, by far, one of the most special days! From the games (a big thanks to my girlfriend, Kelli!).. to the décor… to the party favors (thanks, momma!).. down to the FOOD (it was so GOOD)… every little detail was absolute perfection, and I can only imagine the time that was spent planning it!

I know the general idea of a baby shower is to shower the mother-to-be (and father-to-be!)  with needed items and gifts, but this day was so much more than that! Being able to spend time with both family and friends is priceless to me, as we no longer live near our loved ones. So not only did we receive the most beautiful and thoughtful gifts, I was able to look around and see the faces of the people that I love most! That’s what it’s all about! 🙂

Thank you so much to everyone who came and to those that have graciously sent gifts!  Derek and I are so grateful for your love and support as we embark on this journey called Parenthood! We feel the love, and we definitely feel so much more prepared for baby Audrey’s arrival! A special thanks to Bonnie for hosting and to everyone who helped out with making the shower absolutely stunning and so much fun! It is a day that I will never forget!

Below are clothes that I wore when I was a baby (see pictures in frames). The goal is to photograph Audrey wearing them at some point!
