JJ’s Baby Shower

This spring my friends threw me a sweet baby shower. Since I already had a lot of gear (and hand-me-down clothes from my brother’s kids), I just asked for diapers or second-hand stuff but really the best gift was just having an afternoon with girlfriends. They organized a nice little “game” where cards were given out with questions on them like “What’s your favorite memory of your father?” or “What’s your favorite family tradition?” and everyone shared their answers. It was great to share experiences and we all learned a little something about each other.

They did a fantastic job with the food and decorations, too. Here are some shots.

Thanks, everyone! I felt very loved : )
