Baby Shower Love

Sam, Denaye, Misha, Amanda

Saturday was my baby shower, hosted by three of my good friends, Sam, Misha, and Denaye. The event was gorgeous; the ladies put a ton of thought into all of the details. They made sure we were satisfied with a full Mexican spread (prepared from scratch by Sam and her husband, Brian), sangria, lavender lemonade, and cupcakes. Denaye brought the macaroon favors all the way from Chicago.

There were about a dozen guests. It was wonderful to be surrounded by so much love from such wonderful women. In addition to showering me with love, they also showered me with gifts and books for Baby Girl.

I'll let the photos tell the story...

We were beautified and fed.

Beautiful display of cupcakes and macaroons, straws and flowers, and beautiful paper fans.

The shower was absolutely fantastic and will forever be a fond memory for me. Our daughter is so lucky to be so loved before her life has even started. I am extremely grateful to all who made my day so special.

You may want to keep an eye on Misha's blog because I think she's going to share her adventures in creating the beautiful crafts she whipped together for the shower.
