Handmade with Love
pull-apart sticky bread- it was a hit! We had a baby shower thrown for us last weekend, and it was wonderful. Zach and I both felt so blessed and lucky to have such wonderful friends. The delicious food was just one homemade way friends and family have been showing their love lately. A few of my favorites from the day: fresh fruit with homemade grand marnier pastry cream... White cake with lemon curd filling, buttercream and toasted coconut.... In keeping with the lemon theme, Sarah made lemon cupcakes with vanilla icing. All in all, it was a beautiful and joyous day. Other homemade gifts have been generously given to us lately. Like this little hat. And the cradle Zach's dad made for him when he was a baby. I feel so lucky to have been gifted with this beautiful piece of furniture. Friends, don't you think that handmade gifts are the very best kind?
