WITH BAITED BREATH, Tori Cannon asks her BFF, Kathy Grant (both of whom are in their late 20s), "Why aren't we married?"
Kathy answers: "Because nobody asked?" But then she added, “What if instead of me getting married, my destiny is to give other women the wedding of their dreams at my B and B?”
Ever since I wrote that line, I've been thinking about Kathy's dream weddings ... or more correctly, wedding (and other) showers. I may have to wait until the third novel for her to get a chance to throw one of those showers and/or a wedding, but that hasn't stopped me from doing research. From party games to party food and decorations, I've been downloading suggestions and inspirational pictures.
"She bought a small cake."
SIL shook her head.
"Cookies? Punch? Coffee?"
Again, SIL (who has never hosted any kind of gathering before or in the years since) shook her head.
I knew I was going to be embarrassed, but what could I do? It was the day of the party. I picked up my mother at her house and on the drive to the shower, tearfully told her the so-called plans.

Do you have a story (funny, sad, or in between) to share about a shower?
