A Virtual Recipe Shower for Claire!

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 :)
