on saturday there was a garden party. just for me. i'm not one for wedding showers, but with the big day looming just over a month away, my sister, cait, planned a little surprise just-because. she invited old friends and new friends and made all my favorite treats. cupcakes sent from a faraway friend were delivered to our secret garden by my doting brother-in-law and we sipped on rhubarb iced tea and sampled all the flavors. there was nary a ribbon hat in sight, but there was a momma, who drove in two hours toting forget-me-not plates, just because i love them.
