Family bridal shower

My daughter's soon-to-be Mother-in-law Laurie, hosted a beautiful family shower.
And yes, Miranda literally took my breath away when she picked me up for the shower.

Miranda was especially excited that her Mamaw was coming! She lives in Surprise and doesn't get out too much, but Randy went and got her and she was so glad she came to the shower. I am so blessed to have the most wonderful Mother-in-law and so thankful Miranda will have an equally awesome Mother-in-law too!

Miranda's Aunt Etna is the kindest, most thoughtful sister-in-law and friend. I am so blessed to have her in my life. 

 The two Emolyns ~ yes, the Emolyns were reunited! They sure love each other.

What a sweet moment ~ Emolyn hanging on to her Aunt Miranda's every word.

Love these beautiful, strong, capable young women. 

Nicole made a memory shadowbox for Aaron & Miranda to display their honeymoon travel tickets, brochures, movie ticket stubs, their first purchase receipts, etc. What a fun, creative way to preserve and remember their first year of marriage!

Miranda's Mamaw made an afghan for Aaron & Miranda. SO beautiful. SO heartfelt. 
A homemade treasured heirloom that will surely warm the newlyweds, friends, family and their future children. What a special gift.
