celebrating with family

the love of a family is life's greatest blessing. 

with our little boy on the way, my mother-in-law threw us a baby shower in southern california to celebrate our lil guy. 


what a beautiful and memorable shower she gave us. it was very intimate with a few special people which was wonderful because we were able to spend a lot of time chatting with each family member. i am still overwhelmed by her generosity and kindness. 


A's cousin K brought her 4-month old little boy to the shower. everyone was so excited to meet the little fellow. i think it will be fun to have our little boys so close in age.

it was so surreal to hold him and realize that i will have one of these precious babes in my arms very soon.






putting together showers is a big undertaking and it's not really my MIL's thing but she put together a very special event. everything about that day was perfect – the food, decorations, games, guests, and gifts.



it was so incredibly special to celebrate with A's 87-year old grandparents as well. and they were even gracious enough to host the shower at their home. they are such wonderful people. we just wish that they lived closer to us.


the next day, after our baby shower, we got together for A's annual family christmas brunch. it too was a delightful day. so many reasons to celebrate. i'm very lucky to have married into such a caring, loving family. they are ready to welcome our little boy with open arms when he arrives in a few months.
