This past Saturday was our baby shower (co-ed) and it was such a special day. The shower was a lovely intimate event and it means so much to see that our little one is already so loved. My wonderful friend flew in from Seattle to host the event and she did such a fabulous job. She and I along with DH prepared all the goodies and food ourselves. Nothing beats homecooking. Here is a pictorial recap. :)
Parents-to-be. 6 more wks until we meet her!

I love baking cookies. A couple of fan favorites - jelly shortbread thumbprints and peanut butter blossoms.
Oatmeal raisin and cinammon sugar cookies
Homecooking is the best!

I am married and back from our honeymoon. It was so refreshing for us to have this chance for some true quality time together on our honeymoon. Now that we are back to the real world, I am going through 24/7 hubby withdrawls when we have to part and go to work. haha.

It was so freezing, but we had a lot of fun on our e-session with Anna Kuperberg. We are so super thrilled she is shooting our wedding. Here are some e-pic highlights.
