Showered With Love

It’s cheesy, but my bridal shower this past weekend completely lived up to its name. I wasn’t just sprinkled, but drenched in love!

But before we get there…

I went to Ann Arbor last weekend to attend my bridal shower as well as meet up with lots of vendors and finalize wedding related things. Most of the vendor meetings would be boring to recount (I tried to convince my fiance to join me on this sojourn to A2, I can’t imagine why he resisted. But I had a fabulous time!), but I did visit the farm where the wedding will be held. Last time I was there, it was winter and rainy and miserable.

Then…

And now…

It was lovely to see it in the summer time! Happy green grass and blue skies!

But, as I’ve said, aside from seeing the farm, the highlight of the weekend was my shower. My aunt, grandmother and good family friend gathered women from many different aspects of my life and we congregated in the Michigan League for high tea (I LOVE tea!).

Here are just a few representative photos from the afternoon…

Essentially, my shower was like the best birthday party that I ever had (x10). I got to wear a pretty party dress…

Eat delicious sandwiches and pastries…

The guest list was similar to birthday parties of yore…

Three generations

sisters ❤

although there were several notable (and WELCOME) additions…

Like birthday parties, we played games…

I wore a birthday hat,

and I got to open pretty presents!

all this and it wasn’t even my birthday!

I was incredibly overwhelmed and humbled by the love and generosity of all these wonderful women. It was enough that those who could be there were able to share a special afternoon with me (dayenu). I had family and friends come from as close as downtown and as far as Chicago, Ohio, Washington D.C. and South Carolina! Those who couldn’t be there were sweet and sent notes and love in other ways (my lab even sent me flowers. I nearly cried!). All in all it was just a spectacular day, and I am so grateful to the lovely hostesses for making me feel so loved and special! I’m getting all misty just thinking about it. So let’s just end with some more pics!

Thank you lovely hostesses!!
