Greetings to our family’s beautiful village of friends, colleagues, and chosen family!

November is drawing close and we’re preparing to welcome Halina’s baby to our little corner of the world.

I am so excited to invite you to Halina’s baby shower on Sunday October 1, 2023 at the Tryst Café loacted at Desert Ridge (21050 N. Tatum Blvd. Phoenix, AZ 85050) (not Chandler!) from 3:30 – 6:00 PM.  We’re excited to welcome you to our private reception and are very pleased to share that we have an inclusive menu (diabetes, allergy, and vegan/vegetarian friendly options!).

For those who can’t attend in person, we’ll be revealing baby’s name at 4:30 pm on the same day, with a special zoom link for you all!

Please check the appropriate box below to let us know your intentions by Saturday, September 8th.  And please, if you’re feeling under the weather day of, let us know and we’ll see you on zoom!

Also, I’m compiling everyone’s wishes and wisdom for the baby so please fill in anything you’d like in the box below.  Feel free to write a note, offer a quote, make a wish, or offer a hope for Baby Brooke!

Can’t wait to see you again or meet you for the first time as we celebrate together,

Barbara (baby Brooke’s very excited Grandma!)
