My lovely maid of honor, Katie (with the help of my mother and grandmother), threw me a beautiful bridal shower just before Thanksgiving. It was more than I could have asked for, with delicious food, fragrant flowers, and an incredible group of women. They showered me with kitchen gadgets and unmentionables, and it made even more thankful heading into the holidays.
We ate and drank and laughed and played games and ate some more. I am really lucky to have such wonderful women in my life. Katie and her mom hand sewed all of the prizes, and there was so much attention to detail. She included recipe cards with the invitations so everyone passed along to me their favorite recipe. Thank you to everyone who came and took part, it was so nice to be together.
