We did it! We managed to surprise her!
I am completely exhausted from it all, but I wanted to post at least one picture and let you all know that the shower was a complete and total success. Thank you all for sending packages, traveling (or trying to!) to Long Island and making this such a special occasion.
I promise to give a better update tomorrow. I have to confess that my picture taking skills were not at their best, so Cara has taken the files home and is going to see about working a bit of photoshop magic. But at least this is a very cute picture of Cara and her sweet little niece Charlotte.
