Last weekend was defintely one of my favourites as I spent Sunday afternoon celebrating my cousin Mel on her journey to becoming a Mummy all over again! We threw her a Blessingway, which is a wonderful alternative to a baby shower and is held for a woman as she approaches birth. It's basically a fun day in with the girls and literally blesses the way for the mother to be ready for childbirth. Instead of baby presents, we asked everyone to bring a bead or a charm to go on a dreamcatcher for Mel, and a candle for her to light during her labour, both as special reminders of her blessing. There are lots of lovely traditions to follow for mums-to-be and this one felt right for Mel. It really was a special day. All of these lovely photos were taken by Mel's friend, Rose, who is also very good at bump painting!
