Honestly, it’s been a rough few days. Adding insult to injury, on top of the broken leg, I’ve been feeling horrible and my stomach has been a wreck as a result of my inactivity and pain meds (think sleepless nights and getting violently sick in the bathtub so much so that I could’t immediately jump out of it — ugh!) Anyway, as was stated earlier this week, I’ve needed to focus on some happier times from earlier in the Summer to give myself a little boost.
This party back in June made me very happy…
This was a good bye party we threw for dear friends who were having their 3rd baby — their 1st boy no less — and moving to San Diego at the same time. It wasn’t a shower or a even a sprinkle, and calling it a “drizzle” seemed kind of inappropriate, so we called it “That 3rd Baby Thing”.
We hosted this bring-the-whole-family gathering at 10am (that seems to be the very best time for families with young children) and we wrapped up by noonish. It wasn’t a full-on brunch, so we had morning sweets to go with coffee including donuts, scones, and banana bread (and I added chocolate chips to one batch and made Chocolate Banana Bread — just had to!) We also had hot and iced coffee, various juices and a whole kiddie table of munchies they would enjoy.
It was so wonderful-
WE WILL MISS YOU, VIOLAS!
May God Bless your sweet family (including that precious baby Penn) during this new season!
Side note: The DAY that baby Penn was born, I received a package in the mail in Athens, Ga from this adorable family. They are just too much.
