Celebrating Norah

May Day was extra special for me this year. Lovely Alissa and her beautiful baby came all the way from California to help celebrate baby Norah.

I should preface this by saying that Alissa is no amateur: this lady is the best party planner you will ever meet--no exaggeration. From the handpicked menu to the adorable pinwheel party favors, I feel more than confident saying that we were all blown away by how much work she put into all the glorious details. (So much so that I'm running out of adjectives to accurately capture the moment.)

Check out our digs at the Oasis Cafe. Pretty fancy, huh?

And this is what I mean about the little details: All my fantastic guests signed a hand-embroidered fabric hoop welcoming Norah in to the world.

Cute party favors brought a little bit of California's warm weather to a snowy Utah day.

I won't say how many cupcakes I ended up eating, but these could be part of the reason I've started to get more and more comments on the size of my belly.

Thanks to the generosity of family and friends, baby Norah is going to be quite spoiled. She got so many cute things!

My mom is already watching out for her first grandchild. Sorry Moxie and Sup.

And there's the belly. I don't know how it can get any bigger, but with seven weeks to go I'm sure baby will make more room for herself.

Thank you to everyone who came to support me and baby. Thank you Dad for braving all the women and baby talk to take pictures. And THANK YOU Alissa for the whole package. I'm lucky to have such an incredible friend.
