This weekend was a beautiful celebration of family.
I went back to my hometown on Friday and spent about five hours baking and cooking for my sister-in-law, Darcie's, baby shower. We made fruit salsa, cake, cupcakes, chicken dip, a meat and cheese tray, a veggie tray and punch.
The next morning I finished my duck cake and then we went to the church to decorate. I thought we did a pretty good job if I do say so myself, and about 50 people came to celebrate my new niece. I was amazing to see family and friends, some who didn't even know Darcie but knew me or my brother or my mom, come to support her in this new phase of life.
The next day my parents and I went shopping for a wedding dress, and I didn't expect to find anything. However the third dress was it! I can't say much about it in case Nate reads this, but it is beautiful. It was nice to be able to share that with both of my parents.
Although it was nice to come home, it was a nice weekend spent with loved ones.
