Today was quite eventful, especially given the fact that I was on about 5 hours (less, since I woke up multiple times during the night) of sleep. Still, it was enjoyable and I’ll likely rehash the details in another post.
For those who don’t already know, today was our baby shower. I have to say that I am sometimes astounded at how many people we have in our lives who care for us so much, even more so by how they display that love, like getting up at 4am to drive 5 hours so they can attend and in some cases turn right back around after the shower has ended. It is miraculous to me and I have to remind myself how lucky I really am.
With that said I imagine, I will have a lot of thank you cards to make, which I do plan to make by hand. It’ll be my first attempt using the Silhouette but I’m excited to try and to see how they come out. I also think it’ll be a nice touch to truly show our appreciation, not only for the gifts, but for the honor of having such wonderful people join us to celebrate the lives that we have created. There are so many who know how much we wanted this and how hard it was to get to this point so it was a little something special to have them join us for the celebration of our success.
Tomorrow, I’ll go into more details with pictures and video of today’s event but for now, I need to recovery from a very, long, surprisingly1, eventful day.
Here’s to hoping sleep comes easy tonight because boy, do I need it.
