A Celebration for Zoe

A few weeks ago, my friend Anna graciously hosted a dinner in her home to celebrate Zoe.  We enjoyed a southwestern chicken salad, fresh fruit, and homemade cupcakes (made by my friend Bethany).  


All photos taken by my friend Rebecca


It was so enjoyable to sit and chat with so many women who have had such a positive influence in my life.  




Although I did not get to chat as much as I would have liked (I never do) it was a nice to change to be with all of them without our children in tow.  Many of the women pictured below are either currently pregnant or have birthed their 2nd or 3rd child within the last year (10 of the 17).  


Zoe received so many wonderful gifts including towels/wash clothes, blankets, burp cloths, diapers, onesies, bibs,  stationary, and the cute little pearl bracelet you see hanging around my neck in the photos (I forgot to take it off).  

Anna and the other ladies definitely made me feel special.  


And of course, we all need a little silly in our life.


I was 35 weeks pregnant in these photos.

What an incredibly special night! You looked GORGEOUS! Warms my heart (and of course makes me wish I lived close enough to come visit you myself, hehe)
