I have to apologize, I’ve been MIA from the blog the past couple of weeks, but for very good reason, I promise. Two weekends ago I was showered, literally, with love from my female friends and family from near and far in a ridiculously beautiful baby shower hosted by my Mom. I was spoiled silly, and I left feeling so incredibly loved and so blessed to have such amazing women in my life. I was even surprised by a couple of my closet friends from Vancouver, and I can’t even put into words how much the entire affair meant to me. It also left me thankful that a good number of my friends have children, because their wealth of knowledge is going to be invaluable in the upcoming 18 years.
