love from lauren.

i may have mentioned a million times on my dolce vita how blessed we are to have so many friends shower our baby girl with so much love. This package came from Lauren Nicole, who said ever since i found out we were having a girl, has been collecting things over the past few months. 
the first photo of clothes isn't accurate of everything because there's cute little skirts/onsies folded on top of each other so i could get it all to fit in one photo. i know right? my favorite things had to be the sailboat dress and these sweet rompers which she will wear with her peep toe sandals. 

Lauren added to baby girl's growing library with books like Henri's Walk to Paris, The House on East 88th Street (i love how she sent Felix a stuffed animal that i told Husband he could use as "Lyle the Crocodile" when he reads that one to her), and the classic The Giving Tree. Books always make such great gifts but what made these more special is the little letters she wrote inside to Felix:

"When you're older, I'll send you one of my favorite Shel Silverstein books; that I know by inheriting your mother's love for beautiful books and stories, you'll just love." 

Not only did Lauren spoil Felix, she also spoiled me. I don't think i've owned anything as nice as the anthro set (how pretty are those colors together?) and love the pin-up style of the knickers (which, lets face it-- will be pretty perfect in the transition of getting my belly back to pre-baby size). I love vintage nightgowns and she included lots of pretty girly ones.


L. Nicole (REN), thank-you for thinking of us. There are no words to tell you how above and beyond you went with this and the thing is-- you didn't even have to. Your friendship and support is more than enough. This just shows what a generous and beautiful heart you have. Thank-you with all my heart. XOXO

oh and thank your boyfriend for picking out some of my favorite pieces (so cute).
