The awesome cake! You might notice that this matches the tree in Emily's room. Ellen, the artist that painted the mural also does cake art! It tasted even better than it looks!
My grandmother is a very talented floral designer and she did these awesome centerpieces. Beautiful!
Opening gifts! On my right is my cousin Julie and on my left is my sweet friend Kim. Julie handed all the gifts to me and Kim wrote it all down for thank you notes. Kim was also one of the hostesses.
Lots of gifts! In this picture is my Granny (Grandma's mom- 97 years old,) my Mawmaw (Dad's mom,) Julie, and me.
Wendy and Ann. I have been so blessed by these two women for years. I used to babysit Wendy's son Isaiah (he was also our ring bearer) and I interned with her when she was the Children's Minister at South Mac. She and her family just moved back from Minnesota a few days before the shower, so it was very special to have her there! I have known Ann my entire life, but the most meaningful time with her was when I spent five years teaching with her at Lively. The day of the shower was also her birthday, so it was very special that she chose to spend it with me!
Iris and Debbie, both good friends of my mom. I've also known these ladies forever. Literally. Debbie and her husband were like second parents growing up.
