I’m going to be a step-aunt!

Last weekend we celebrated my stepbrother’s baby-to-be, Graham, at a shower on Friday evening in Denmark, SC. The best [and maybe only] route to the Denmark Country Club involves back roads lined with cotton fields and farms. It’s a gorgeous drive and I was lucky enough to spend the hour ride with my Dad…such a nice way to end the week.

I’m really excited about welcoming the first baby into Camp Slice!

This sophisticated card was very necessary to go with the very dapper sweater Jeremy and I found for him in England.

this itty bitty double breasted hand-knit sweater is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever laid eyes on. I can hardly wait to see it on baby Graham!

The haberdasheries (yarn shops) in England sell hand knit samples in their shops (and they’re not even outrageously priced!). It’s probably best that’s not a big thing here because I might spendย all my money there.

For good measure (and because my stepbrother, wife and baby Graham will be moving to Colorado in June Germany in July! Army life – lots of changes!), we also got him some mittens.

all mittens are cute, but these are particularly adorable, right?!

We picked up both of those from Ewephoria in South Shields.

We drew names for Christmas this year and I had my stepbrother whom I hadn’t seen since we got back from England so I whipped up this belated holiday card on my lunch break last Friday:

you really can't beat silver and black - it makes even a super late Christmas card look chic.

I wasn’t sure what to get him so I consulted with one of my Mom friends. She suggested “a 6 pack of beer and a whole lot of patience”. As a gal who doesn’t drink, gifting alcohol always feels a bit strange and I couldn’t find a package of patience anywhere! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I went with her second suggestion andย got him a backpack (to use as a manly diaper bag) from Jack Threads.

I can’t wait to meet baby Graham and spoil him rotten!
