A Virtual Recipe Shower for Claire!

by jacin on March 24, 2011

As some of you may know, the lovely Claire of Realistic Wedding and Realistic Nutritionist is getting married this weekend {tomorrow, to be exact}!!!!  So exciting!  I have been following Claire’s journey to the altar through her blog and twitter and it has been such a pleasure getting to know her - she truly is a sweetheart and I am so excited for her to say I-do to her very own sweetheart in just one more day!

isn’t she the cutest thing ever? L Hewitt Photography

A few of us bloggers got together to throw Claire a little surprise Recipe shower, so I wanted to share it with you today - thank you Aleah and Annie for putting this together!

I’m sorry, you won’t be viewing my lovely handwriting because, frankly, it’s not so lovely and I wanted to be sure that Claire would be able to read it.  Unfortunately I am not one of those girls with cute handwriting, so I am doing everyone a favor by printing instead :)

And here is a special recipe for her - I was first introduced to this a while back by my friend Jodi and it is seriously always the hit of the party.  Some people don’t even realize it’s watermelon!

Congratulations you two - I couldn’t be happier for you and am sending all of my love your way!!

As I mentioned, there are a few other bloggers participating in the fun today for Claire, go pay them a visit to see the other yummy recipes :)

Have a favorite recipe to share or some words for the bride-to-be?  Leave a comment :)
