Well that is assuming that I still have blog friends.
After my debacle yesterday of confusing a Dodge for a Ford F150 I’m not sure anybody would stick around.
Luke was quite disgusted with it and my sister called me around midnight to inform me of my tragic mistake.
I AM SORRY.
Anyways, last night as I was looking around my apartment I realized that a lot of the items that make up our apartment came from our wedding showers.
Aren’t wedding/baby showers the best things ever?
I get excited when I am invited to one.
I become a crazy woman when I am throwing one.
So I was thinking about how I am so grateful that we got so many great dishes, sheets, towels, etc.
All of the necessities we needed to start our life together.
And then I thought about two very special gifts that we received at one of our showers that are irreplaceable.
The first one is a quilt my mom made us.
My mom is an amazing seamstress and in a very short amount of time she made us this quilt with pictures from our entire 5 year relationship on it.
In the top right hand corner is a picture of us with Luke’s family, and then in the bottom left corner is a picture of us with my family to signify the families coming together.
I just love it so much.
Receiving the quilt at our shower last April:
Another present that I love so much is the one that my grandma gave me.
Before Luke and I were even engaged (we are all just assuming he was going to marry me, thank the Lord he did) she began collecting various holiday items.
She gave us a basket complete with decorations for every holiday.
Fourth of July
Fourth of July
I have placemats, kitchen towels table runner and little decorations for every holiday.
It is so great!
Going through the basket at the shower:Some of the contents of the basket:

These gifts are so special and they have encouraged me to really think about a gift before I give it to someone I love.
I want to give something that is sentimental and has special meaning.
