The Sweetness of Showers

Hello Friends–
We’ve been to a rash of baby showers the last couple weeks.  Ani is expecting that baby girl in about 20 days and we’ve been celebrating and anticipating with friends and family up and down the state.

The thing about showers– of the wedding or baby variety –is that they are filled with so much Hope!  So much looking to all the joys ahead…  With the baby arriving, there’s blessings and hugs and baby advice and tummy patting and all those adorable little baby clothes wrapped up in bright packages.  Add in flowers and friends and cake, lots of cake!  There’s a lot of sweetness in these showers…

  1. About 20 days????? I can’t imagine the excitement and joy that Ani and Brian are experiencing right now! And you, sweet Rhonda, will be the best ever grandmother! Your new baby girl will be so blessed, to have you and Larry, loving, supporting, encouraging and doting on her every inch of her life’s way!💕💕

    • Hi Andi!! Yep, we are all jumping up & down excited. We were up in SF this weekend for a shower at Aaron & Jessica’s. It was a beautiful time. And I’m going up end of next week to stay with Ani for the “Baby Watch!” Hugs to you & Keith!!
