baby shower by the bay

in celebration of my cousin-in-law, caroline’s soon-to-be baby, family and friends gathered on a perfect summer day at “blue shutters” to shower her with love, laughter, food and gifts.
the guest of honor
perfect card for the day… “rock-a-bye baby on the sea tops”
theresa, who discovered her passion for floral arranging this summer, put together all of the BEAUTIFUL bouquets
sparkling pink lemonades in cut crystal cups… perfectly lady-like!
my baby block cake, inspired by one from martha made for a adorable center-piece

caroline has a raspberry OBSESSION, so our cousin monica’s flan hit. the. spot! yummm.

the funniest gift of the day? from uncle tom, of course:
“for caroline: i heard you were having a shower.”
good luck, caroline! we can’t wait to meet baby carrot!

so, clearly i’ve been offline and out of touch for a while… 

so after work last night, i sat down behind the hazy blue glow of my computer screen to chip away at the 800 some odd blog posts on my reader that i’ve left unread…
and there it was.
on my guilty-little-pleasure site.
violet. affleck.
(adorable as ever)

holy goodness, i don’t think i’ve ever been so elated.
the first celebrity baby sighting in Sarah Waldo Organics! woooo hoooo!
and then i fell asleep. hard.
