Yesterday I got to celebrate my pregnancy with a great bunch of ladies. All of them gathered to share in a special day in honour of me and little Baby E. Of course, I am going to share some photos from the Baby Shower with you soon, but first I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU!
Thank you to Heather – my sweet friend, neighbour, and co-worker! I am so grateful for the amount of time and energy you spent organising a baby shower for me. The theme, the food, the cake and all the decorations were beautiful! I know that throwing parties in China is not the easiest task, and for that reason, I appreciate your efforts even more! You know how hard it is hard to be away from family and friends, and you did everything you could to make me feel loved yesterday! Both Justin and I are very thankful for that, and we love you!!

Thank you to Tarrin, who is also pregnant and all the way on the other side of the world. She is in South Africa, my home and the place where most of my friends and family are. Tarrin emailed my family and friends, then gathered gifts for Baby E, and sent them to China in a big box. The package was delivered to Heather, who then presented them to me along with all the gifts Justin’s family had sent from the States, so that I could open them all on the day of my Baby Shower. Tarrin, you are the sweetest friend, and I love you dearly! You did all of this while pregnant and working full-time.. You are a champ! I am really enjoying going through our first pregnancies “together”. Your regular emails brighten up my days, and it made me feel so loved that you did this for me! You are a wonderful friend!
Thank you to those far and wide. Justin and I are so grateful for all those people in our lives who sent gifts for our baby. It’s not easy having a baby in a foreign country, especially in one where barely anyone speaks English, but with all of you showering us with love — we know that we have tons of support!
Thank you to all the ladies who came to the Baby Shower yesterday. You all gave us such wonderful gifts for our little one, and we appreciate every single one of you for your generosity and friendship!! It would be nearly impossible to live in China without all of the friends that we have made here!
Just some of the love that we received yesterday
A big thank you to everyone who blessed Justin, myself, and our little baby!!
The Baby Shower was great, and we appreciate all of the LOVE!
