One Saturday in April 2012, my daughter and I held a wedding shower for her best friend, Anya. Anya happens to be the daughter of one of my best friends so we are all very close. We had a great time giving her a wedding shower.
It was fun coming up with unique decorations.
Getting people to stop and sign the guest book.
Ordering the cake.
Fixing lots of good food.
And of course a dessert table.
Then one day, we get the word. Anya and Josh are expecting! We were thrilled. She has been the adopted "Aunt" to just about every child that passes through our church. She loves kids and was born to be a mommy. Everybody was so happy for them.
So one Saturday in January, we were once again standing ready for a celebration shower. This time for a new baby soon to arrive. Ms. Jama, another friend of Anya's and ours created some gorgeous decorations for the shower.
We were up and running with more good food.
Some awesome fruit punch.
And more goodies for dessert.
And now here, we are on another Saturday waiting for the news. Anya is in labor and we could have a baby any time today. A precious little boy is expected and I can't wait to watch Anya as she blossoms into the Mommy she was intended to be. She is in for the ride of her life and we wish her and Josh all the joy possible.
