The Love of Others {A Story of Abundance Part 4}

3/3/13 at 3pm, dear friends threw me my final shower. Ali (from childhood) came down from Greenville to co-host with Patricia (from City Church) a book-themed shower. Everywhere we turned, really well thought-out and executed decor greeted us.

They prepared appropriately girly food (see Sugar n Spice menu), a cheese and fruit spread, mimosas and hot chocolate. Friends from Florida joined local work and church friends for an afternoon of chatter by the fire. It was relaxing and peaceful and very "me." I am blessed to have friends who know me so well. Forgive the picture over-load. There were things we didn't even capture! Also, I will update this post with a group shot as soon as I get it from Patricia. :)

"inside of a dog, its too dark to read!"

Everyone wrote notes for me to read after the baby arrives- can't wait to read them!

Everyone made a bet on due date and gender... still waiting for the results...

The Highlight...
We had a time for everyone to pray for me, Brandon and baby. It was sweet and perfect and loving.

Ali and Patricia- THANK YOU! 
Hug the baby!
