A couple months ago when my belly was a tad more basketball-ish, my friend Mykol (who clearly has impeccable taste) hosted an amazing baby shower. The theme was welcome to the world so everything from the invitation envelope to the paper garland favor were map and globe themed. She even borrowed about thirty globes from her mom’s collection to scatter throughout the house! It looked (and the food spread tasted) like something right out of the pages of Martha Stewart Living. I am dang lucky to have such thoughtful friends. Beck definitely had a warm welcome to the world.
