32 is going to be a great year! It's an even number (which according to Heather is a good thing) and celebrations for my bday were great! 

B-day love from near and far

Baby Love

Heather and Erik came to the East Coast for one of her best friends' weddings which was perfect timing for a shower for Baby Luna! With the help of my mom and Erik's mom, we threw a fantastic shower for the Luna's. My fabulous friend Jessie came down from MA to take pics of the event so everyone could focus on enjoying themselves! 

Guests filled out cards for wishes for the little guy. 
"I hope that you always __" "I hope that you love ___" "I hope that you learn to ___"

Our family friend had a baby shower for her daughter in law a few weeks prior which was perfect timing since the color scheme matched ours! We borrowed her tall vases, and table runners for decoration. Those adorable Hershey Kisses can be found at Party City! 

Pregnancy looks good on Heather! What a gorgeous Mama!

Party Favors! We got little bottles of champagne / moscato for people to drink and cheers to baby Luna when he is born!

Random Bagpipers and Cat? Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This post is 95% recycled from the old blog.

Our St. Patrick's Day started off with a new family member moving in! 
Nash White, is now Nash White Mead-Vollono. She made her grand entrance on March 17 and promptly claimed the top of the green armchair as her designated spot. How fitting for her move in date! 

We celebrated the holiday with Lori (& Colls the day before), Green Beers and Random Bag pipers at Harry's 
The bag pipers were hired by the owner who also owns The Avenue, White Horse Tavern, and Shanghai Social Club  - to rotate between the aforementioned bars playing bagpipes the entire weekend.
