A few weeks ago, some Nashville friends gathered around us to celebrate the arrival of Baby Short. Jordan and I feel so blessed (an overused word, but also true) by our Nashville community and when I originally sat down to write this post, all I could think about was gratitude. My heart is bursting with love.
Moving to a new city is overwhelming for a multitude of reasons, but quite possibly one of the biggest reasons is the fear of loneliness. Will I be able to find a tribe? It's a valid concern as finding friends isn't a guarantee. Through some luck (and a little effort), we have found ourselves embraced by an amazing group of people. This tribe came together to host a lovely and relaxing baby shower.
Jordan and I had no requests for our baby shower, except that it would be a time to relax and enjoy time with our friends. As the pictures will show the baby shower's theme was Pantone, which is genius considering Jordan is a graphic designer!
When I was last at my parent's house, my mom and I were flipping through old photos when I stumbled upon the baby shower for me. It was really sweet seeing the community my mom had developed in such a short after their move from New York to Ohio less than a year before I was born. I can't wait to show these shower pictures to our little one someday, for him to visually see the loving environment he was entering into.
