Afternoon Showers

Well, hello bloggers.  I hope this post finds you all wrapping up a lovely weekend.  Mine was filled with celebrations of all of life's greatest events.  

Yesterday, I went to a wedding shower for a good friend who is marrying Mark's best friend in July.  I couldn't be happier for the two of them so it was wonderful to get to spend some time with the glowing bride to be.  The bride chose lavender and white as her wedding colors, and I happen to think that is such a lovely and sweet combination.  This image of lavendar champagne makes me excited to toast to the bride and groom in a few months.

That shower was followed by a second shower for some friends and neighbors who are expecting their first baby in just a few weeks.  The hosts had a two hour cocktail party for the girlfriends of the mom-to-be, and then the gentleman joined us.  I loved that idea!!  I was cute to see how excited both of them are about their mpending arrival.  Since they are waiting to find out the baby's gender, I selected the Kissy Kissy Duck converter gown and paired it with this adorable flat plush duck.

We ended our evening at the 50th anniversary celebration for some life long family friends.  I hope to be so lucky to enjoy fifty wonderful years with Mark.  The speeches that the happy couple gave were so genuinely filled with love and joy and happiness that I left that evening with such a warm feeling in my heart.

Mark and I were saying that I had come full circle Saturday.  I spent the day celebrating a wedding, the birth of a child, and a 50th anniversary.  Isn't life amazing!  I sit here and look at my belly as it grows a little bigger each week, and I hope that our baby finds his or her life filled with a lifetime of love.  I hope to be celebrating our 50th anniversary and looking out into a crowd of those most important to us and see the precious face of the baby we will meet in November.
