The baby shower went wonderfully, was very low-key, and mainly happened outdoors. Many mixings of our family members occurred, which hasn't happened since the wedding. House tours were given, dogs wandered freely, and people explored all the nooks and crannies of home and grounds on their own as well. My mom and my friend somer did most of the work, which was such an appreciated gift to me. (Som painted the old hutch I found with two coats of white, and it was moved into the kitchen and filled with my pyrex collection mere hours before guests arrived. I'm enamoured with it.)
It was a very, very good time, with all the parts of our new home filling with conversation and good energy. (And chalkboard wall drawings done by the little ones.)
The weather was perfect, and some of tim's family slept over, in tents and on tarps under last night's beautiful sky. We all went to bed late, full on talk, love and life. In the morning they wandered back inside and we ate veggie frittata, toast and lots of bacon. Leisurely cups of hot fresh-ground coffee and pulpy orange juice.
I hope your weekend was filled with such good things as well!
