Awesomeness, that’s what.
The picture above is from our family shower, thrown by FSIL Amy and Chris’ mom and aunts. It was at a local restaurant, and it was filled with our family and family friends.
I loved Chris’ dress at this one. She looked so pretty! My mom helped me pick out my outfit, which is why I look fancier than usual. The only sad part of the whole day was that she wasn’t able to make it. She had a compression fracture in her spine, probably from wrestling a bear or something. But my brother recorded all of the present opening, and they took her a meal to go. We visited the next day, which was nice.
Mom is feeling much better now, still improving. Sad that she wasn’t at the shower, but happy that this means she will be at full power at the wedding.
A few weeks later, our wonderful friends threw us a shower! It was at the Wigle Whiskey barrel house, so the location and the drinks were excellent.
And the company, of course.
Aubrey, Heather, Michelle, and Beth threw us a lovely shower. It really was a lesson in Pinteresting. The took the travel theme and ran with it. So lovely!
Thank you to all of the people who made these happen, attended, or sent their wishes from afar. We love you all.
45 days to go. Let’s plan a wedding! #Chronica2015
