I feel so blessed to have had so many wonderful women attend my shower, but none was more special than my Grandma. My Grandma has Alzheimers and it has made it difficult for her to be a part of our lives outside her nursing home. Unfortunately, she will not be able to make it to the wedding. But she did come to my shower! It was such an unexpected gift to have her there with me, and she had an absolutely wonderful day.
Here are some more very special women in my life - my mother and my soon-to-be mother-in-law!
Here I am with our friend who will be doing all of our flowers as she pins my corsage onto my dress. We are so blessed to have her as a part of our wedding! Behind her is my other Grandma (who graciously helped with the food for the shower!), and my Littlest Sister doing her best "Where's Waldo" impersonation. :)
These ladies are very special to me too. The one on the left is my Mom's best friend and has been like a second mother to me my whole life. Both of these ladies graciously gave me a job at their children's clothing shop when I was in high school and have both always been a part of any of my big life events. They also helped Super-Crafty Sister with all the wonderful food!
This is Beemer. Yes, that is her name. She is not my grandmother, but feels like she could be! She worked at the children's shop with me when I was in high school and became one of my close friends. It meant so much to have her there!
I could go on and on about all the wonderful ladies in my life who showered me with love on Saturday, but here are just a few more pictures of the wonderful time that was had by all. I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life!
Next up....the presents!!! :)
