Several months ago a dear friend asked me if I’d feel okay with her hosting a baby shower for Baby Girl, especially given that she’s a second baby and she’s relatively close in age to Luke. I thought about it and discussed it with a few people and we decided that since we were having a girl this time around, it’d be okay. So, we had a girls weekend in Columbia in early March, before I was no longer allowed to travel, and I was blessed with a wonderful Saturday morning with friends from the area, friends from Charlotte, and even got some love from friends in other states, too, even in their absence.
At the end of March we were blessed with another sweet Baby Girl shower by the women of First Presbyterian, hosted by a new dear friend. We hemmed and hawed about this particular shower because we wanted to have it when someone from Columbia would be in town to celebrate with us as well, but we also didn’t want to do something too late into April for fear of Baby Girl making an early entrance like her brother did. We settled on the Saturday of Easter weekend while our friends Jana & Rusty were here with their boy, since grandparents wouldn’t be arriving until closer to the due date. While grandmother’s couldn’t be present for the shower in Mayfield, Candy managed to send a gift through the hostess and it was a great time with some wonderful ladies at First Presbyterian.
Here are a few pictures of the two showers, hosted by two beautiful women, all to celebrate the life of Little Miss. How blessed we are!
