On Monday, my blog friends threw me a virtual bridal shower and it totally blew me away! I’m still pretty speechless. They are seriously the best. Like, OF ALL TIME. I was really not having a great morning (I mean, it was Monday) but seeing all of the fall goodies they made and the love and thoughtfulness that went into their posts made my day in a big way. I only wish we could all get together to celebrate in person! You would have to roll me home. It would be awesome.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, but one of the major perks of blogging is the people you meet along the way. Many of these ladies have gone from being virtual besties to real life friends, and I am so lucky to have all of them (and all of you!) in my life.
The theme for the shower was FALL, which, if you know me, is totally fitting. Fall is my favorite season by far, mostly because of the abundance of orange vegetables, but also because the weather is just perfect, it is the best time of year to go running through Central Park, and the world just feels beautiful. I can’t really explain it, but these ladies hit it SPOT ON.
