I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, mostly as a thank-you to all my friends/family who either helped put together our baby shower last Sunday, came out to celebrate, or snuck a peek at our registry and had gifts shipped here, but as usual, life got in the way. I can’t believe our little baby girl is coming into our world and lives so soon—I’m likely going to schedule my c-section in the next few weeks and looking to connect with other mommas who’ve had it done. Even though I had fibroid surgery, I think recovery for this will be… different, so curious to know about c-section experiences. Let me know what to expect in the comments!
I had a really lovely time at the shower. There’s not much more to say about it other than I loved having friends from all walks of life gather together over yummy Italian and some of the most delicious cake I’ve ever stuffed into my face. I can thank my friend Eve and her wife for that—they brought a beautiful two-layer cake that had cannoli on one layer and strawberry on another. HOLY YUM. They also named the cake Nelly because they had it strapped into the front seat of their truck and said “woah Nelly” every time they went over a bump, lol. Vegan cupcakes also courtesy of Eve/Dawn.
Here are some pics from that day—whether you were there in person or in spirit, please know that our hearts are so full because of your presence in our lives.
