Our Baby "Shower" :)

I have been so excited to post and share about our Baby "Shower" with all of you! Our parents really outdid themselves! No detail went unnoticed and everything was so beautiful. My mother-in-law and step-mom spent so much time making this the perfect day for me, and I will be forever grateful. When I walked into the room I just couldn't stop smiling...actually I couldn't stop smiling the entire day! Seeing all the love in the room from our sweet family and friends that came out to celebrate our growing little family was so overwhelming. We even had family that traveled from out of state to make our special day. My grandma flew in from Florida and David's aunt came in from Chicago. It was such a fun day filled with love and laughter. We truly have the best family and friends. Leah is already so loved and she isn't even here yet :)

Here are some of the details from our Baby "Shower"!

The adorable pink pagoda umbrellas were dripping with rain crystals to represent our baby "shower"  
The beautiful menus and cake that my step-mom designed and had made. Both had elements from the baby shower invitation. I love the small details :) "Prego-tinis" that were passed around to the guests

I wish we would have stopped to take more pictures with family and friends but we were too busy enjoying the moment. Here are a few we did get :) 

I know many of you will recognize this familiar face :)

The amazing hosts who made this beautiful shower possible. We can't thank you enough for all the time and hard work you put into making this the perfect shower for us. 
The adorable invitation and the cute little surprise on the back of the tag :)

Proud and excited parents-to-be :)
I love that David was a part of it all. Seeing the excitement he has for the arrival of his little girl melts my heart.

Thank you to our sweet family and friends for showering us with love and gifts for Leah. We are officially all set and have everything we could possibly need thanks to all of you! You are all too generous! Thank you for making this such a special day for us.

David, Rachel, and Baby Leah

  5. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
