quiche and fresh fruit and scrumptious salad were served. after we were done eating the women went around and shared stories of motherhood and their advice for me, a new mama. many tears were shed and laughs were shared. i cannot even begin to describe how much i appreciate the honesty of these women, many whom barely know me. however, their love for me, being the daughter-in-law of their dear friend, was so obvious, palpable, welcomed. i am so honored that beth and mary would share these women with me and introduce them to me on such a profound level.
this is the cake that mary picked up from indulge bakery. it was some of the best red velvet i have ever had. see the cute little bean at the top? it’s a kidney bean under a blanket! so adorable.
my amazing sister, beth and my incredibly generous mother-in-law, mary.
the wonderful mothers. thank you, ladies, for all your love and encouragement and honesty. you have made me even more excited and confident to be a mama and i feel so incredibly supported.
