Yesterday afternoon I was honored to celebrate the impending birth of a dear friend's second child. I met Lauren while we were in the sixth grade. We were the best of friends throughout high school, we even walked in graduation together. I feel so lucky to have her in my life and to have shared so many wonderful memories with her. Motherhood being by far the most important. I believe that within seconds of her telling me that she was expecting, I asked if I could be responsible for throwing her baby shower! She obliged, and I was thrilled. It was a wonderful evening, filled with friends both old and new. Family members attended as well, and Lauren was stunning in her eighth month of pregnancy. Here are some images from the shower. I can't tell you how pleased I am that Lauren enjoyed her baby shower, that the cake was moist and delicious and that I had a chance to use my grandmothers desert china... What a treat.
