Ships Ahoy: A Shower for Evan Michael

This past Saturday, some of my favorite women gathered to celebrate the pending arrival of our newest little sailor, baby Evan. My lovely friends (and party planner extraordinaires) Kelly, Mel & Susan threw the most fun, beautiful, coordinated shower. It was such a wonderful time of blessing. (All pics by the incomparable Mel).

Delicious food!

Fun party favors (who doesn't enjoy a muffin in a jar?)

Moi, feeling delightfully full of yummy brunch (and full of Evan, as well):

Scenes from opening gifts:

itty bitty converse socks. love.
reading a note from my friend Bridgette: sweet, encouraging, and the gift of a housecleaning--totally my love language!
My lovely hostesses gave me a juicy velour sweatsuit: this Mama will recover in comfort and style. Holla!

My girls & I:

T-Minus three weeks until the due date; hopefully we'll have a baby in two, if all goes according to plan. :) Thank you to my wonderful hostesses/friends and all the sweet ladies who showed up to shower Evan with love. So grateful for our loving, gracious, prayerful community who bless me over and over and over!!
