|The Science of Married||
Yesterday was the first of Jessica's showers (ohhh wedding season has begun - so thrilled!), hosted by my grandma and my aunt Yvonne at Great Cooks on Eight (in the Simpson's Tower) downtown. This is where I had my family shower as well, but the place has gone through some renos and now looks even better than two years ago. The servers were great and so helpful! Here are some pictures from a lovely ladies afternoon:
Nice, airy venue with a few of old City Hall
Simple and pretty table settings
View of the whole room
Delicious sandwiches (goat cheese and cucumber, also BLT with avocado were both incredible!) and cheese
Mom with Mischa and Rachel
Gabriella doing Eden's nails
Jessica arrives and Eden jumps into her arms!
Such a sweet photo of Jessica's mom and little sister Eden
I love showers for the pretty wrapping paper and bows (I still have most of my gift bags from those days!)
My gift to Jessica - another MadeByGirl purchase
Jessica with her sisters (and bridesmaids and flower girl) and mom
And some photo edit fun with another family pic
Mmmm cake - strawberry cheesecake, chocolate, and carrot from Dufflet Pastries
View of Queen Street below and all the shoppers!
My shutterbug friend - we are going to have some fun in the Dominican together!
All my family's girls together!

Yay my present - which she didn't even realize said "Jess and Adam" until way later that evening, haha
