Baby Shower Brunch




As I mentioned here, you'll be seeing this dress a lot.


I'm still dreaming about this cake.  It was glorious.
It's a boy!

Before I left for Michigan, Jessica and Whitney threw me the most beautiful baby shower.  Every detail was thoughtfully arranged from the purple tulips (my favorite) and outdoor venue (Primitivo) to the delicious funfetti flavored cake from Susiecakes.  We had the best time catching up, chatting about baby gear, eating delicious food, and listening to the acoustic live music playing on the Primitivo patio.  The entire day was absolutely perfect and it was so much fun celebrating the upcoming addition to our family!
