My best friend is having a baby!!!
Abbey and I met in 8th grade and have somehow maintained that friendship through high school, college, that weird post-grad time, and now regular old LIFE. She’s my oldest friend and one of the truest, most genuine souls I’ve ever known. So, of course, I had to host her bebe shower!
Her mom and I teamed up to plan the shower in DC and it was super lovely. Big shout out to my mom and her Aunt Judy for all their help setting up!
The Cake Room in DC made the most lovely, delicious cakes and cookies for the celebration! We ate sugar, popped bubbly and Abbey unwrapped tons of gorgeous gifts. I am pretttty sure Abbey felt special, we all felt honored to celebrate her and it was a totally gorgeous day. What more could we ask for?
The beautiful mama on her throne!
After the shower, Abbey’s husband Dan hosted everyone for an incredibly epic dinner party! He is a talented host and chef and served an incredible spread. It was the perfect way to finish the day of celebration and connect with family and friends.
One of the really special parts for me was reminiscing on our time in PA together with my mom and Abbey’s parents. We all went through some fun (read: coming of age) times together and it was so cool to get together again years later!
The next morning we took a short walk on the beautiful trail behind their place! It was so heart-warming to see everyone who cares about Abbey and Dan all together, celebrating their growing family!
CAN’T WAIT FOR BABY GLEASON TO BE HERE IN THREE WEEKS!
