I needed a blog sabbatical. I can’t be bothered to offer an explanation. Suffice to say I was feeling a little weary and self-indulgent. But hello. Since my last post, I’ve been home to Vermont, spent some hours in Boston, planted some greenthings, and have had some really great beer. More on that forthcoming. Welcome back. This post has been in my drafts for ages, so I figured I’d polish it up and send it out into the world. Friends, it’s a start!

Dani and I are currently in the process of planning a baby shower for a co-worker who is pregnant with her first little kidlet. Since all  of our gifting ideas seem to be rooted in rainbow fantasy hippy land, we’ve decided to go with an appropriately themed party. I’m honestly out of my element, here;  I haven’t planned a party since college, and I have zero experience with baby showers (and babies). That doesn’t mean that brainstorming hasn’t been a total blast, though. Can we wear unicorn horns and fairy wings? I don’t know, but there will be glitter on the cupcakes.

Buying baby stuff is lots of fun, but I was feeling like poor mama was getting left out of the equation. Their registry is obviously focused on more practical items, so we’ve been trying to find balance, picking up little things here and there that will pamper mom and keep her spirit high when things are looking tough. After all, carrying this little human around has been (and will likely continue to be) a lot of hard work!

If you’re a mom, tell me what your favorite baby shower gifts were! Was there anything you received that was super thoughtful? We’ve also encouraged people to bring books to the shower instead of greeting cards, so feel free to leave some suggestions!
