A blog beginning with my wedding journey all the way to my pregnancy journey with a little bit of life sprinkled in.
It doesn't bode well for the wedding when you're nervous about the bridal shower due to the amount of attention you'll receive when opening the gifts. Yep, I was anxious days before the event even arrived. After all, all of these people I loved were taking time out of their days to "shower" me with love and gifts. I wanted to make sure I displayed the appropriate amount of enthusiasm when I unwrapped their presents, no matter how mundane the item may be. Therefore, being one who is always well prepared, I practiced changing my facial expressions, varying the pitch and tone of my voice to sound authentic, and responding with humorous quips to each unique gift. In all my wisdom and experience, I have gathered for all of those people who go through life rather awkwardly like me some advice on handling showers and other social gatherings that center around you.
