Our Rainbow Girl’s Baby Shower
It’s been about a month since we had our AMAZING baby shower for our rainbow girl. I honestly went back and forth with the idea of doing any type of party. I had all the horrible thoughts flood over me. What if something goes wrong? What if I lose this baby too? I already have baby stuff from my son I don’t need more? Do I don’t want to celebrate such a painful journey? I REALLY thought about it and talked it over with friends and family and it became clear that even though the path has been full of twists it still deserved a celebration for how far I/we have come!
I sat with Michael on New Years Eve this year in Florida and said to him “do you remember this night exactly one year ago?” We were in the Bahamas, I refused to get up, get dressed, put makeup on, eat, and was medicated to keep me somewhat ‘together’. Here we were, exactly 365 days later, out having a beautiful night while I was 8months pregnant with another beautiful girl. THAT is exactly why we had a baby shower. THAT is something to celebrate. I miss my sweet girl in heaven every single day but am so incredibly proud of myself, of Michael and of this baby girl kicking in my tummy for how far we have all come.
All that being said I’m sharing a TON of photos from the day along with links for all who were involved in making the day so special. Per usual Doc Horn made everything extra special and was full of surprises. I swear in his previous life he was a party planner/travel agent haha. Also, HUGE moment of appreciation for our party planner. I told her I was imagining a ‘midsummer nights dream’ vibe and HOLY COW did she make that happen!! I walked into the event space that morning and my mouth literally dropped open. Every single detail was covered and beyond perfect. Thank you Thank you to ChicFromChicago and if you are looking for help with ANY type of event I cannot recommend her enough!!
