Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments¬†captured by¬†REVAMP.com’s¬†Daniel Swartz¬†and Rita Lawrence¬†with¬†Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to¬†the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company¬†Von Der Pool Gourmet. ¬†I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and¬† mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.

A glance at some¬†gifts…

It may be March Madness but Washington got wild about the football stars who turned out to support the ‘Tigerlily Kick-Off for Breast Cancer’. Redskins Jason Campbell, Lorenzo Alexander and Kedric Golston spoke from the heart to a crowd packed Josephine on Vermont. The ladies of the night: Tigerlily founder and breast cancer survivor Maimah Karmo & dentist Dr. Alex Naini who planned the party that will help so many young women from the metro area!
