This little miss in my belly was spoiled with a petite picnic baby-q shower this past weekend (also known as the last week of my second trimester!), which was replete with tastiness, sweetness, playfulness, and kindness, particularly from all the amazing friends and family who generously showered us with their presence and love, and especially from those who helped to organize such a lovely shindig. As Alex said, thank you so much in advance for being part of the village to help raise this little miss in my belly. We are the most blessed folks with the most loving Lord who has gifted us such sweet community.
