November Showers Bring February Flowers (And Babies)

Learning that we’re expecting our first child has been an incredible ride.  Aside from the ups and downs of pregnancy, I’ve been blown away by the encouragement, support and generosity of our friends and family.  After Thanksgiving, two of my honorary aunties threw me a gorgeous baby shower in Northern California.  “Aunt” Rae Ann actually threw my mom’s baby shower, 3 decades ago, when she was pregnant with me!  And “Aunt” Rachel used to tell strangers I was her baby when she and my mom would go out!  The two have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember.

From baby Tom’s shoes… to a Tiffany and Co. silver spoon… and a host of beautiful handmade treasures… I felt as spoiled as Baby Beau himself.  And to top it all off, my mom ordered an apple spice cake, decorated with my favorite childhood (and let’s be honest- adulthood) animal: the sloth!!  Surrounding by girlfriends, family friends, honorary family and my real family… it was a baby boy shower that I won’t soon forget!
