A Baby Shower for a Dandy of a Girl

Dawn_Shower
[Join the Party if you’d like!! - click above]

Today is a special day in which we celebrate the upcoming birth of Peanut, the little boy baby of Dandy and B. (Just 41 days to go per her baby countdown!)

Dandy (Dawn), of Spontaneous Clapping fame is a beautiful person, inside and out, a true Survivor, a fan of my Ruby and Gracie (which is a hint as to my shower gift), and someone I consider a dear blogger friend.

True, this is a virtual Shower, so we have no real goodies to eat, or presents to pass around. But we can offer advice, celebrate life, and send our love… which is exactly what we’re doing today.

Dawn has a beautiful blog, and she is a regular blogger (unlike me). She’s just so darned good at it too!! If you visit, you will see one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen, gorgeous New Zealand photos from their honeymoon, the very cool-est engagement photo shoot ever, and highlights from her day-to-day life. Dandy is a breast cancer survivor, and I believe she lives every day to the fullest. Something we could probably all take a lesson from. This girl is Pure Joy.

A Baby Shower includes gifts of course. That being said, I planned to make something to send for little Peanut. I always have such good intentions. But, the next best thing was to send something someone else had made. Sorry, Dawn, I couldn’t resist sending this Wonky Donkey shirt for Peanut. I wanted the next best thing to you and Peanut visiting Ruby and Gracie live and in person, so please think of us when this tee arrives at your doorstep in a few days.

My only advice is
love, love, love.
Let love be your guide and that’s really all you need.

So, we here at Flat Creek Farm send love and blessings your way.
Here’s to Dawn and B and Peanut in beautiful, sunny CA!

Wasn't this just the most fun thing to do. I could hardly wait for the day to arrive. And that tee-shirt. It almost made me want to have more progeny......almost. I will settle for a grand progeny though.
