Babies, baby showers, due dates.....this summer is the summer of all things baby! This month we've helped thrown two baby showers, attended one and have two friends due in the next couple weeks. We love honouring others and celebrating them in a fun and special way so really, every summer could be filled with babies and we'd be thrilled.
Our little sister Brie asked us to help her throw a baby shower for one of her friends, Shelby. Shelby is an incredible vocalist and I first met her after a church service on Sunday. She had led worship and her passion and genuine adoration for Jesus was so clear and evident in her rendition of Oceans by Hilllsong, so I had to encourage her and meet her after! Brie speaks so highly of Shelby so naturally, any friend of Brie's is a friend of ours.
Our friends at Rocky Mountain Flatbread in Vancouver quickly jumped at the chance to partner with us and treat our guests to delicious, hot, homemade flatbread pizza. Seriously if you are ever in the Vancouver you have to go order one! The Sundried Tomato one was my personal favourite although every last piece of pizza was eaten - it was that good!
We completed our menu with mini desserts, fruit and veggies and Sparkling Ice. Sparkling Ice is definitely our new favourite summer drink. You have to try it; bring a bottle or two to the beach or to your next summer soirée and you will be pleasantly surprised with the twist of flavour they put on a classic lemonade drink (the strawberry lemonade was our favourite!).
After we all ate, drank and were merry, we showered Shelby with some words of encouragement, gifts, and some epic baby shower games.
To the new mom Shelby: You just radiate beauty and we hope this shower left you encouraged, loved and supported as you begin journey of motherhood. We will share in your triumphs, your joys and your tears over the next years to come. We will also continue to remind you how angelic your voice is and I think we both will always be a bit jealous of those pipes ;)
