The only gift is a portion of thyself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

On Saturday, my matron of honor, Casey, hosted a lovely wedding shower at her home. We enjoyed yummy good and great company... and plenty of wonderful gifts too! I received most of my registered towels and bath accessories, knives and plenty of other goodies.

I was so grateful for the time and thought that went into each and every gift... it was such a nice afternoon!

Yummy food - including the best little tea sandwiches.

Darling presents - I'm guessing everyone knew that I loved polka dots!

Guessing Nick's answers to Casey's questions... every one I got wrong I had to put a piece of bubble gum in my mouth!

Uh oh - another wrong!

Mouth full of gum but I only got 6 wrong!

Yay polka dots!
One of my coveted Wusthof knives - yippee!
Beautiful quilt from my mom - she made it! It was a project we started years ago using my dad's old shirts and famous bandanas. Now it is a cozy quilt for my new home.
