Showered with Love (and gifts)

This past weekend some friends and I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend, Katie. She is expecting a baby boy in just a few short weeks and we wanted to shower her with love as well as with a few gifts for the baby. We had "high tea" and I had scones with clotted cream and lemon curd for the first time ever! (sad, I know--I had no idea what I'd been missing out on all these years). :)

We had a great time and our small, intimate group ended up just sitting around chatting after the "shower" activities were complete. It was a nice afternoon "just as girls" and it was fun pampering and honoring Katie during this exciting time in her life!

My friend Ruth blessed Katie with a foot massage during the shower.
I know her pregnant, aching feet appreciated it greatly!

Yum - lemon curd is very easy to make and keep on hand for snacking! :-)
