it’s a jolly holiday with Mary…..

I spent the day with my dear friend, Mary.
I could write a post 74 pages long about our friendship, but I will be brief and just say that I love, admire and trust Mary so much.  We have been through extreme highs and deep lows in our brief 4 year friendship.  And now, on the cusp of the birth of her firstborn, I thank the Lord for His goodness and providence.
Ok…enough of the mushy stuff.
We had tea (oh my word, the food was GOOD)….

And then we did a little organizing in the nursery….
Mary has such a flare for vintage and always makes it look perfect.  I dig her style.  Always have.  She's so classy.

I love you Mary and I love your baby already.  I can't wait to see him/her and tell them how blessed they are that you are their mom.  (and to spoil them rotten and therefore earn their adoration)…..

  3. There’s nothing better than wonderful friends and new babies- I’m glad for you. And the nursery is to die for cute!!

  4. Hi, I found you through Beki’s blog…
    Your friend’s nursery is darling! She is blessed to have such a sweet friend as you.
    I’m amazed that you had the self-control to stop & take a picture of that incredible-looking french toast – I’d have been half way through before I realized “darn, I had wanted to take a picture of this!” I adore french toast.

    Hi Rachel,
    I’m Jen, Mary’s sister! You bought the bike, she wanted that so bad! I’m so happy that she got it! Thank you for being such a wonderful friend to my sister. She always mentions you and all that you do together. I can’t wait to meet my precious little neice or nephew and tell this little one how much they are loved! I’m on pins and needles waiting for the day of arrival….maybe we’ll do coffee in the waiting room! 🙂 The room looks beautiful!!!

    Rachel, I love your blog! It was good to see you again at Mary’s shower. You are a dear friend to her, and therefore, high in my book as well! Great pics, especially the one of my lovely sister!
