It was a beautiful weekend, especially so because my beautiful niece had her baby shower – a.k.a. belly blessing. We all went to the park with lovely offerings of yummy treats and full of well wishes for the expectant mum.
We played some games, added our wishes to the wishing tree…

and decorated candles for use at the impending birth. The mum-to-be had asked her guests, instead of gifts, to bring along a positive little story about a birthing or childhood memory. It was a lovely experience, shared amongst all of us- young ladies just starting out with motherhood and some of us perhaps a little more seasoned in those fantastic times of being a mother, which none of us would give up for anything.
