“Official” wedding celebrations have begun! My hometown bridal shower was this past weekend, in Appleton. It really was a wonderful day, filled with lots of love and excitement. I was surprised with amazingly thoughtful details, like my favorite flowers, cute bridal games, childhood photos, flower crowns, and the prettiest cupcakes I ever did see. I must thank my gracious hosts, Julie and Alexis, my family and guests. It’s been so special for Kevin and me celebrating with others leading up until the big day this fall!
