Our baby shower was absolutely beautiful. We decided, during one of our marathon hospital conversations with Dad, that it would be really nice to have it at Blue Canyon, our favorite “special occasion” restaurant. We knew it would be pricey, but Dad agreed to split it with us so we figured it would probably cost about the same as the other “DIY” showers we’ve had in the past. It would also be far less work! The setting is gorgeous, as you can see below, and required very little in the way of decorations. Shane and I purchased some decor for Eugene’s nursery that fit the theme of both the shower and the room, so we brought that along, Aunt Emily brought some of the goodies that she’s purchased for the nursery, along with wish and Bingo cards, and Aunt Tonia brought beautiful flowers – all wonderful, and all significantly less work than we’ve done in the past – #winning!
It was a beautiful day! We were surrounded by so much love from so many different walks of our lives…and we don’t take any of that for granted. So many times during the afternoon, I looked around the room and was so thankful for all of the love and support we’ve had recently and over the years. I know that Baby Eugene will feel the same and for that, I am so thankful!
