Bronce’s sister, Lauren, and sister-in-law, Melissa, were kind enough to interrupt their busy schedules to plan a beautiful baby shower for me. Bronce’s mom and Aunt Deborah were out of town when the shower took place a few weeks before (thrown by my mom and friends) and they were disappointed they couldn’t be a part of it.
Lauren and Melissa (with the help of Linda and Deborah) planned a Saturday afternoon event at the Apple Cake Tearoom, a charming location in West Knoxville. The guest list consisted mostly of Linda’s friends from church and some extended family.
We spent a few hours together catching up, laughing, and enjoying each others’ company in the upstairs party room. It was a sweet afternoon to be together.
This Noah’s Ark bank is adorable! I love it and it has a special place on the shelf above my glider. It’s engraved with an “R.”
