This evening I have the most lovely honor of hosting a shower to celebrate the upcoming birth of my dear niece, Scout! I have been planning this celebration since before I knew she would be a “she”! We’re celebrating picnic style and I’m super excited for it! Knowing that this celebration needed to be top of the line, I called in the reinforcements!
My best friend from Oregon flew all the way out here to help me with the festivities! I’ve spoken of Shauna’s ability to throw a party before, but honestly she is excellent at this kind of thing. She has fabulous ideas, a great eye for design and decor, and when I try to convey some silly idea I have, she knows exactly what I’m talking about before I even get it all out. She’s amazing. She flew in yesterday afternoon and spent the rest of the evening with my sister and I icing sugar cookies, making tissue pom poms, tying loads of bows, and chopping vegetables.
We did take a break this evening after dinner to walk around downtown and enjoy an iced coffee. Shauna, Sarah and I enjoyed each others company while this little guy wouldn’t leave his Uncle Aaron’s side.
Life doesn’t get much better than this. ♥
Mom and dad…we miss you.
