April 22, 2012: on my way to an Iowa City book-themed baby shower hosted by my lovely friends Adele, Jill, and Ali. Hosted at Ali's new home. The book-themed cupcakes by Adele were adorable and delicious! Another delicious treat, by Jill. It was so special to get to enjoy an afternoon with my favorite Iowa City friends, representing the UI English department, our church, and teaching friends. Can you guess the more commonly-known names of these children's books? For instance, instead of “Famished Butterfly Predecesor”… Baby Carey and I are so blessed to have these ladies in our lives! At Jill's suggestion, each guest hand-decorated a onesie for Baby Carey. The generous shower hosts: Ali, Adele, and Jill (with baby Ava). THANK YOU!
