Life is...(Weekending style)

IMG_1005 IMG_1062

This weekend was spent preparing for sweet baby's Baptism. Saturday was monsoon like weather so I was happy that (almost) all my errands were complete before that! There was just a little cleaning, a little bit of throwing random things in closets, nursing stuffy noses & relaxing.

Sunday morning thankfully dawned bright and beautiful. A beautiful way to honor this special day in V's life. The Church was gorgeous as always, all our loved ones were there. Baby slept peacefully through the whole ceremony just as she does each week at Mass! The party afterward was beautiful with all the love for our family flowing through our house.

After everyone left and the house was mostly clean I sat on the couch for a few hours snuggling my new little daughter in Christ. There is something very holy about smelling the holy chrism on the head of a newborn. My heart was full to bursting last night with the blessings of everyone who came. 

A beautiful weekend with my two beautiful girls. And today dawned bright & WARM! Here's hoping for a little outside time today. Some cleaning up maybe. And the first day of Hibernate! It's a good start to the week so far!!

Linking up with Amanda


  1. God bless baby V! You had such a lovely day yesterday. I remember when Nicole was baptized - that night was the first night she slept all the way through for 6 hours. I don't think it was coincidence! Have a wonderful week :-)

  2. Such a special weekend Jen. Your girls are both so beautiful and I know they make your heart swell.
    Have the most wonderful weekend. It's warm here too, darn it!

  3. congratulations! Your family is so sweet and beautiful. May God's blessing shine upon you and your family!

  4. What a special weekend! And how serendipitous it was that this weekend was the celebration of His baptism - lucky girl.

  5. Beautiful. You look so happy--it just radiates off you in the pictures. xo
