Hi! When I said I was going to be MIA this spring & summer, I wasn’t lying. Life is cray.cray.cray. But life is great. And for the record, I am still getting married! In about 5 weeks.
Speaking of getting hitched, remember back in December when my mom & bridesmaids threw me quite the shower? Most people would think that’s all you get. But no, that’s not all you get when you’re marrying into a loving Italian & Ukrainian family.
The shower my soon-to-be family threw was at CYC. Did you know we liked boats and nautical things? They picked a pretty spot on location.
Not only did Dean’s aunts host the shower, Dean’s cousin (and my near & dear friend) Lori, made the cake. And no, Betty Crocker didn’t help. This girl has talent…right?!
Everything on that cake was edible. Thank you, Lori! You’ve got it going on!
I’m so grateful for all of the ‘showering,’ however, being the center of attention tends to be a bit awkward, right? Hopefully the bachelorette debacle will prepare me up for the wedding…ha!
Can you tell Dean was stoked by this gift?
I have felt like a member of Dean’s immediate family for years and this shower made sure I never doubted being accepted into the fam. Thank you Aunt Viv, Jackie & Kathy!!!!!!!
Next up? Bachelorette, I do’s & Maui!!!!!!!
