A Baby Shower

This weekend I was blessed to co-hostess my beautiful Shannon's first baby shower along with her sister in Orange County.
I have been thinking about celebrating Shannon for months and seeing orange & green with every week of anticipation of the final day.
I may have been a little eager but loving on this dear friend of mine was embedded in my heart!
{Thank you, Jackie, for letting me share in your sisterly right!}
Things to know about Hostess-Jackie:
She always throws epic parties, she is an amazing hostess always opening her home, and oh--ya--
She just had her third boy 5 weeks ago and managed to host this beautiful party in her home and with thee kiddos under 5 beneath her feet!
Things to know about Shannon--the guest of honor:
She has the biggest heart of any one I know. She'd give you the shirt off her back, the last dime in her account, and words of wisdom from a Godly woman's heart any moment you ask her to.
Shannon, I love you as my sister.
Isaac is the luckiest little boy in the world.
