Baby Shower Invitations

I got some pretty awesome mail Friday—an invitation to my baby shower, and instead of trying to tell you how awesome it is, I'll just show you.

It's a booklet! (Sorry this collage is so shitty, Mel; I should have had you make it yourself.)

This invitation was designed entirely by my wonderful shower hostess, the lovely, thoughtful, and talented artist/designer/illustrator extraordinaire (Is that your official title, Mel?), Melanie Hudson. The girl has skills, right??

When I opened the invitation, I was blown away. I love everything, from the pretty sticker on the envelope to the sweet woodland creatures. (Remember Danny's "Party in the Woods" post?) I especially appreciate the little details plucked from my blog (perfect heart and pig nose), because this blog has been very important to me, and I can't wait to share it with my baby someday when he's old enough to get it.

Anyway, I cried before I even opened the booklet. Just seeing "Baby Celis" underneath the little owl family did me in—and as I read on, I couldn't believe how personal and perfect it all was. When I showed the invitation to Danny, tears actually rolled down his cheeks, and he said, "Everybody loves Baby Celis!"

And it's true. This is one lucky little boy I'm cookin' up right now.

What a sweet invitation! I have to say, the day of my first shower I was blown away by all the love and support we have for our little angel, seeing how excited everyone else is really melted my heart and I'm sure it will yours too. Enjoy!
