After living in San Diego for two years, Derek and I were blessed to not only live close to my parents, but to meet some amazing life long friends. After telling our families about the arrival of our sweet baby, I think the next few people I told were Mandy and Stephanie, the two sweet girls who put this adorable nautical inspired baby shower together. With the help of my Mom, they were able to plan and execute this darling shower while I was visiting San Diego in October. The delicious food and treats were compliment to the fantastic company and beautiful weather. We enjoyed lunch and company while sitting on my parents back patio, with a light breeze and sunny morning. It was such a wonderful day surrounded by so many whom I truly love, ranging from childhood friends, women who have known me from ten to twenty years, and the friends we made while in residency. It was more then I could've asked for, and am so grateful for all these sweet people in my life!
