Baby Shower in Town


Maternity leave has started, leaving time for a bit more writing and… waiting. So here come the throw-backs.  Allia and I were so blessed to have two gorgeous baby showers thrown in honour of our pending arrival. The first was summertime barbecue, with beautiful weather, beautiful friends and family. The second was at a friend’s stunning farmhouse Country Showers Bring Sweet … Horses!

We are so lucky to have a warm, wild and fiercely loving group of family and friends-who-are-like-family to help celebrate and guide us as we get ready to be mamas. This was shower number one of two and we already feel so spoiled… all smiles, all day. #thankyou!!! #lesbianmoms #babyshower #rainbowfamily

A backyard bbq, swimming pool and games for the kiddos was a hoot. The weather was cooperative and the decor was handmade by yours truly and my friend Lindsay.

My friends and family are a colourful bunch. My mom, in yellow, is over the moon about the upcoming arrival.

Whether poolside, or the country equivalent, being surrounded by loved ones helps the anticipation build and shows you what an incredible community is waiting to love your little one and support you on that journey.

Cheers! We are officially past-due.


Stylin’ Shower


today was full of showers- literal and figurative. Our friends are due very soon and their wonderful web developer friend hosted a shower at her sleek studio. Though the weather was rainy, we were all smiles inside.  

 It was family friendly and there were loot bags for little ones, with a whole room of toys and activities. 

Mum-to-be, K, looks radiant as ever!  

Food was plentiful and a gourmande’s delight. 
 The studio is full of places to hang out and look cool – and do amazing work, so I suspect. 

  Our nieces were totally entertained. We were treated to great conversation and libations.   And we discovered that our niece is. Budding photographer. She even knows how to change filters.  She isnt even three. 
  These are the highlights from her hundred-photo burst. It makes me feel lucky that I have such awesome friend and family’s- and that an event many people dread is a complete pleasure.    

 Our hostess just happens to be a T.Swift doppelgänger. Just sayin.  Cheers to all the folks expecting wonderful bundles.
