On Friday, the shower was hosted by Sean’s aunt and a friend of his family (who is as close as family as anyone else). The hosts came up with the cutest theme: Deck the Deck. Everyone brought gifts to help us make the most of our outdoor space—grilling tools, lantern lights, salad bowls, a firepit. We were amazed at how kind and generous everyone was. We felt so blessed to have these wonderful people in our lives!
Events like this make me more and more excited for the upcoming nuptials. A coworker asked me the other day what I’m most excited about, and I knew my answer right away. I can’t wait to have all the people we love—from so many different areas of our lives—in one room, celebrating with us. When I envision that day, I see scene after scene of our friends and family. This day may be about Sean and I coming together as husband and wife, but it’s also about the people who have shared in our lives and will be there to celebrate this incredible milestone. I can’t wait!
