The Bestest of Friends: Springtime Shower
My super generous friends Winona and Brie (that'd be the cute redhead and the babe with the super long hair in mustard) threw a sweet springtime shower for Baby Sharrett a few weeks ago. I was super thankful that they used our home, that so many of my friends joined us to celebrate, craft and shower us and that it didn't snow too much - that's right. Funny Kentucky weather. You might not know it, or you may think much of the goodness in our lives was made by me, but that's not the case. I've got the most generous friends. And really the most creative, too. Brenna led a craft to make embroidery hoops for the baby's room. Each guest got to choose a hoop and crafted whatever they wished on there. So many cute and thoughtful little hoops were made and waiting to be hung. Brenna's even stitching one up with Baby S's name and birth info once baby arrives. So sweet!
Highlights for me aside from the hoops? Seeing the chalkboard and clipboards being used for fun and goodness. That chicken salad. Oh dang. So good. Apple pie bars; I still dream about them - and those macaroons from the Boyce General Store. Ah-mazing. Favorite gift? Probably the little navy cardigan my middle sister, Sara, made for the baby...out of one of our Dad's old sweaters. It's precious. So grateful for friends who have walked through this pregnancy with us, treated us and showered us - such a joy.
