It’s been a month (well.. 1 day short of a month) since my 2nd bridal shower. I’d done so many recaps on the lingerie shower around that time that I figured I’d wait to talk about this shower until y’all would be ready to listen to me ramble on about another fun day.

This shower was gorgeous.

You see, my Aunt Gloria is the party planner in our family. Every Christmas Eve, every New Years Eve, every holiday…we’re at Aunt Gloria’s. She’s got a HUGE house and knows how to throw a good party, so we just leave everything up to her.

Aunt Gloria is a sweetie. She’s my favorite Aunt and she knows it. When I was little she’d have me and BM Monica over to the house to bake/decorate Christmas cookies. She always took the time to teach me (she was a teacher for forever so it makes sense) and I’ve always loved her for not just shoo-ing me away just because I was a kid. She’s also my Godmother, which makes her even more special to me.

Anyway, on August 6, Aunt Gloria threw me one amazing shower.
