Showered with blessings
On this past Saturday, my good friend S hosted a baby shower for me at her home. It included my mom, sister, cousin, and niece, and otherwise was full of friends with whom I have worked in one way or another, mostly singers. More than 20 women actually. She served a delicious champagne brunch, made up beautiful flower bouquets that included lavender from her garden, and had sweet little Baby Boy party favors right when we walked in the door. It was just as I would have planned it: sweet, but unassuming. I received loads of gifts that were very obviously thoughtfully given, and the energy in the room was clearly supportive of and excited for me. I couldn't have asked for anything nicer. It still seems a little surreal that it was for me and this baby that we haven't even met yet! Cheesy but true: I am so grateful for these people who are surrounding me with cushion and love.
