He reminded me many times that he “doesn’t like the spotlight.” I think he’s forgetting about the whole Wedding Day thing – where it’s all about us – but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Sidenote: He’s shy, I’m not exactly shy. How we ever ended up together, I’ll never know. 🙂

^^Case in point. I was probably talking up a storm, meanwhile Jeff was just quietly going about his business.^^

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, we were so lucky (I know, I know, I say that a lot these days.) because Jeff’s aunt and mom threw us the most lovely shower for friends and family out in the D.C.-area.

Including a hand-stitched (that’s right, hand-stitched!) quilt from Jeff’s grandma! I’m almost afraid to touch it for fear I’ll ruin it. Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

And after relishing in all that great kitchen gear we got, which I think might just motivate me to take up cooking (keyword: might), we got to try our hand at a little cake-cutting.

And to top it all off, my beautiful mama came to town too. Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetOh and last but not least, I’m fairly certain we had the cutest one-year-old this side of the Mississippi at our shower. And who are we kidding, she stole the show.

    Looks like you had fun! Seriously, that little girl is so adorable. Tell your friends to let you take her picture all the time because I love when she pops up in posts. 🙂
