Showered with Goodies . . .
My sister worked with my nieces to decorate her lovely (designated) heritage home with baby accoutrements over which we oohed and ahhhhed -- and the tables were laden with a fabulous spread -- my other sisters contributed generously as well, and I know Megan felt grateful -- not just for the shower, but to be part of a family that treats each other so well.
As Duchesse noted in a comment on my Friday post, it's always important to recognize when Busy-ness is a Happy Busy (or at least includes a significant portion thereof). I'll admit to feeling a bit overwhelmed going into the weekend, but this was an event that refilled my bucket. . . all the driving and picking up and dropping off . . . that effort pales in comparison to the reward!
Thanks again, Kathy, Rohan, Rachel, and Grace for a wonderful day celebrating the present, excited about the future, all in the warmth and fullness of relationships built in the past. My only regret is that I didn't take home a piece of that delicious lemon cake and/or the way-too-fabulous choux-pastry-and-whipped-cream marvel. Yummmmm!
