baby shower

When it's ten below and the snow is falling, there really is no better way to escape the cold than to spend an afternoon at Burntwood Tavern celebrating a new little one!  This shower was one of my favorites (I'm biased though, I helped plan it!), mainly because a hot chocolate bar was involved.  Who doesn't love a steamy mug of cocoa with all the fixings?

Lauren and I have been friends since before we knew what friends were.  Somedays I think I'm more excited about her being pregnant than I was about me (last year).  There's something exhilarating about your friends reaching the same stage of life as you, whether through marriage or babies.  They understand you, but now it's like, she GETS it.  Now, she'll understand why I'm showing up to her house with sweet potatoes in my hair.  She always laughs off my outfits and tells me I wear the food well.  What a good friend.

Planning and photographing Lauren's shower was a dream come true.  Plus, it gave me the perfect excuse to indulge in all things pink and girly for a day :)
