Yesterday my friend Beth and I had the most wonderful opportunity to celebrate my friend Sara as she is just a day away from traveling to bring her sweet Mya home. We hosted a Christmas Tea/Shower at our house and were incredibly honored to be able to give her an afternoon to bask in the joy of becoming a mommy again and for all her friends to lavish her with gifts and goodies for Mya. I love to entertain and open our home to friends but combining this love with the celebration of the adoption of this precious little girl who will soon know the love of a mommy and daddy is just beyond words. It was a beautiful Colorado day and Sara and the girls and I enjoyed some yummy food, laughter, and most of all a time of just sharing in Sara's joy. I am posting a few pictures for you to enjoy. What delight filled my heart as I looked at these photo's and saw the deep joy on Sara's face. She is just so beautiful and I am so grateful to call her my friend.
She and her husband Bill are departing for China tomorrow and you can follow there journey to Mya here.

God bless all of you. The shower looks like it was just so much fun. And you are right... Sara was just glowing.

I am just a blog friend of Sara's waiting for her baby in Texas.
