I'm hosting a baby shower for my friend Darci this weekend. If there was a "top ten list of people who love sweets" Darci would be on it! From sweet tea to sweet and sour candy, you can count on Darci to have a favorite place or brand. That said, I think there is one thing that she loves more than sweets and that's having babies. That's how the theme "Sweet Scoop Number Two" originated. When Jami was born it brought such sweetness to Darci's world. You could see it in her face and hear it in her voice. Sweet, tiny fingers and toes. Sweet tiny smiles. Sweet baby smells. Precious and sweet snuggle time. I think the soon arrival of Mikayla will bring that same sweetness.
So Sunday's shower is about enjoying the sweetness of a cool dish of ice cream on a hot summer evening, AND celebrating the sweetness babies bring to your life. Especially the sweetness of little Miss Mikayla Rae Grimes.
