Baby D's Baby Shower!
My brother and sister in law, Will and Amy, are expecting their first child next month!!!!! This is the first grand baby for my side of the family, and wowowow we're so excited. This little boy is already so loved. We've been ready, but this weekend's shower for Baby D made it so real. It felt like more than a shower for me. I think it did for all of us! It was just special. It was an experience of life. It was

Life doesn't slow down. But Saturday felt like it helped delay the turn of the page a little bit. Soaking up all the small details, breathing in moments sown with love, my family and I rejoiced over a new life and enjoyed precious time with the things that matters most: people.
