This past Saturday, my sister and her daughter, my in-laws, and my sister-in-law’s family threw Steve and me a lovely brunch (for many reasons – not the least of which was my mom’s absence – the traditional all-female at-home baby shower didn’t make sense for us) at 44 1/2 in Hells Kitchen. Almost all of Steve’s family attended, as well as my dad, my sister and niece and around 20 of our closest friends. It was such a lovely event. Below please find some of our favorite moments and details from the day. Because I don’t like to assume that folks are comfortable with pictures of themselves or their children on the internet, I’ve focused on including elements here while respecting folks’ privacy. Thank you so much to our families and friends for their generosity and helping us prepare for this huge milestone!
