While I was in California, my mom threw me a baby shower and spoiled this little babe. We had a yummy spread of cheese and bread, delicious sandwiches, and cupcakes. The ocean view made for the perfect backdrop at
The Gum Tree in Hermosa Beach. Friends and family came from all over to celebrate this new little boy and have one final get-together before his arrival. They filled a book of sweet love notes to our little family (which later brought tears to my eyes), dispensed advice, and brought an endless supply of laughter.
It was an all girls affair, and every single woman there is a mother, sister, or friend who I admire and cherish. It's easy to get caught up with every day troubles and forget how many beautiful and inspiring women I really do have in my life. Old school friends, childhood neighbors, a few Ribbonettes, and special family members all shared this special afternoon.
I'ma lucky girl.. and my baby boy to be is already so loved and spoiled by all these special ladies!
I'm so grateful for all these ladies and especially for my Mom, who is going to be an awesome Grandma!
