Chelsea’s “Friends” Shower!

Nicole and Lindsay (both cousins AND friends) decided to throw Chelsea her “friends” shower. The BEST words I have to describe it are:


It was amazing! As I drove up around dusk, there was a glow of lights far off amidst the pear orchard and Magic (the horse). As Ashley and I came closer and closer, I could see that there was a large table set up, so that all attending could be in one accord and be part of one conversation.

There were fancy delicatessens along with a tiny cake for each place setting. As the night went on and the sun was setting, we enjoyed the lightening in the distance and the light breeze drifting through the pear trees. It was the most delightful party I’ve ever been to.
