Tonight, a few of the women from my tribe are getting together to host a little blessing for me and this new baby I'm about to produce. I love the idea of a blessingway - not a shower, because I already have all the stuff I need from baby number one - but an evening to honor the fact that our family is welcoming another very special soul into the world. I'm excited to see everyone and enjoy the company of my ladies! And speaking of special rites of summer, aren't these impromptu celebratory outdoor spaces tops? I love the tented canopy in the first photo!

And on a separate note, this was the scene in my front yard this morning!
Our very own "Make Way for Ducklings". I think all this new life is good mojo.
