I’m so happy to share that my husband and I are expecting our first child!! It’s a really exciting and (already) life-changing experience. It’s amazing how it’s shifted our perspective and without a doubt it will even more once the baby comes in January.

Two weekends ago we had a Gender Reveal party with our family at my in-law’s home. Here’s a peek: reveal_front door decor{cute front door decor – is it a boy or girl superhero?}  reveal decor_mother goose bookreveal_cupcake tower{delicious cupcakes from my fav bakery, Frosted Cakery}

I was curious to know everyone’s guess of the gender, so we had them grab a pink or blue golf ball. It was interesting that the majority of our family chose pink balls. reveal_golf balls 2I’m so grateful that my good friend, the talented event planner behind hooRAE, Rae Pardini, came to our rescue. She handled the reveal (crazy she knew the gender before us), so we didn’t have to find out before our family did. It was as much a surprise to us as it was to them, making the experience even more special and priceless.

I knew I wanted to do something golf-related, but wasn’t sure what. Rae had the idea to fill a golf ball with either pink or blue powder. When it was hit, the ball would explode and reveal whether it was a boy or girl!

Apparently our niece, Payton, is happy she’s getting a girl cousin! reveal_payton with ballreveal_pink golf ball in our hands Reveal_pink ball in 1:2{ball (on right) post-explosion} reveal_pink cupcake up closeWe’ve appreciated all the support and excitement from our family and friends. I’m really looking forward to A Lovely Life continuing to evolve with more topics, including the pregnancy, childbirth + baby. I hope you enjoy it as well!

Stay tuned…
