an autumn | storybook baby shower {part two}

thank you again for the love and kind words about {part one} yesterday! so glad you all enjoyed seeing the details from my charlotte shower- it really was such a thoughtful and meaningful event. i can't say enough about how much time and planning went into this shower. usually i help my family put together events in ohio for our extended family and friends {which i also love to do} but it was nice to show up and be showered for this event ♥ that morning was so peaceful and was full of my favorite things to do in my city on a saturday morning {the farmer's market, owen's bagel and deli, polished nail bar, and coffee} so showing up to an awesome event was so nice... i am forever thankful. it was a day i will always remember.
