Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, and the Importance of Friends

This weekend I went to a baby shower for a sweet friend. Do you ever have those friends that you just meet or have a few conversations with and think, "I just adore her...How have we not known each other our whole lives?" Whitney is that friend, for me. I met her almost into my 30's and we came together over the bond of losing a child, but I feel like I've known her for years. I have been so blessed in my friendships. So blessed. I don't have a million friends I talk to every day, but I have that small handful of friends who just make my heart happy. Some I don't talk to or see very often - but when we hang out, I just feel like no time has passed. Some I talk to multiple times a week and it feels like it's never enough time. And others, I get to see and talk to every day at work and yet, still, get so excited when we get to have a girls' date.

I think the older I get, the more I reflect on these friendships and what they mean to me. Good friends mean so much more to me now than they did even even five years ago. I think having a family put a few things into perspective for me - why take time away from my family, my husband, my kids - if I don't REALLY want to be with someone?

The baby shower was just perfect and I just can't wait to snuggle her precious baby boy when he arrives in June. How loved he will be!

Hubby snapped this photo of me before leaving for the baby shower:

And this one, below, of us before I left and he went down for a nap!
On Saturday I am throwing a bridal shower for another friend who I will have the honor of calling my "family" in only a few short months. I would love to tease some photos of the party prep, but Becca is a frequenter of my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise for her! I can't wait to post all the fun details! I did a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme (although...it's more of a "brunch at Tiffany's"!) and got Miss Isabella Lynn the cutest black dress and pearls for the party! (It's way more fun to dress the girl for whom every dress fits - than it is me!)
