My sweet virtual baby shower

Dear all,

I have been wanting to write this blogpost for a while now. As you know I am expecting a baby in the coming weeks and in the US there is this great tradition called “Baby shower“.

The original intention was for women to share wisdom and lessons on the art of becoming a mother. My blogger friends are the wisest and the great Katharina from the beautiful food-blog Katharina kocht, organised a great virtual baby shower for me with the best blogger crew in Germany. My party was everything but traditional and there were not only women invited! But there was a lot of wisdom going on!

I got up on 8th July and was so overwhelmed with the surprise. It didn’t stop all day, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I received so many lovely messages and blogposts full of love under the hashtag #MADAMELOVESBABYSHOWER.

Here is a little overview of my virtual party for you:
