twinkle twinkle little star • baby shower

one more, i promise!
this beautiful baby shower is too good not to share, and was thrown for me by my colleagues, Kiristin and Dina. they created the most delicate outdoor ambiance at the Hibiscus House in West Palm Beach. precious work friends joined for light bites, drinks, and the can't-miss baby games and gifts.
#30weekspregnant that week.

my fellow preggo, lara. she is exactly one week behind me and it's been a pleasure to go through this journey along with her. 
lot's of texts/calls about what's normal, how we're feeling, symptoms, and all else. love it!
my mom, and soon to be first-time grandma. 
thank you dearly to all these lovely ladies for coming out to celebrate! your support, gifts, love, and 
care mean so much to me.
