This past Saturday, my baby girl and I were showered with love and more baby gear from some of my sweet friends in Charlotte. I have only been living here for about 14 months, but I've been lucky enough to meet some really special women in that time, most of them through blogging! It was really hard to leave such great friends in Virginia Beach and Norfolk, but I really feel like I've found a wonderful circle of women to call friends here.
Here's the invitation my hostesses had designed by Sweet Birdie's Nest.
The food table and decor were all just adorable! Everything was in pink and orange, the color of our nursery. The hostesses saw this picture on my nursery inspiration board, and kind of went from there...
How cute are those cookies by Holly?
Aren't they a perfect match to the tree picture? I was so impressed!
The banner said "Isn't She Lovely?"
Like I said above, I was definitely showered with gifts!
This baby girl has so many cute things!
Some of my teacher friends from school and sweet baby H!
He's the little guy J and I babysat for a few weeks ago.
Me and Faith! I spent the morning at her baby shower for her twin girls which was also precious!
Me and sweet Lauren, I have loved getting to know her since moving here!
And last, but certainly not least, me and the fabulous hostesses.
I love each of these girls so much!
(thank you for opening up you home to all the guests M!)
And you know what's really fun? Katie and Ashley are both expecting babies in March! That means between my baby girl, Faith's twins, and Ashley and Katie's babies, there were FIVE babies on the way at the my shower! So fun! I love being able to share this pregnancy with friends.
I can't say thank you to these girls enough! It was such a special day and I felt so loved. I know I've said this before, but Charlotte is feeling more and more like "home," and a large part of that is due to these friends. I am a very lucky gal!
