My baby shower

As I mentioned before, my mom and sister planned my shower. It was a beautifully planned party with many thoughtful and unique touches.  The guests were family members and close friends that I have known since elementary school.  It was such a blessing to have all those loved ones in the same room, celebrating this little one's life.  I didn't get many pictures, but here are some that captured the loveliness.

The bird's nest favors that my sister made and forgot to hand out. Oops!

Karis loved her pink straw.

Italian soda served in mason jars.
The awesome centerpiece made by my friend Jacqueline.
no words.
Flowers dedicated to my late Grandma.
  A HUGE thank you is due to my mom and sister, you both did an amazing job (and thanks to my dad for helping with much of the 'behind the scenes' work).  I appreciated everyone who came to love on this baby.  
We feel very special!
