That's what today was all about. Our precious little C celebrated her First Communion. She looked so, so beautiful and yes, the tears were hard to hold back.
My mother's godmother gave my mom a cross on her First Communion day.
My mom gave the same cross to me on my First Communion day.
I gave it to my little C today.
Then it came time to celebrate with family and friends—while I blew out some candles. Hello 41!
In the midst of all the craziness, before heading out to the church, I actually did make this jewelry box. Can you believe it? We needed it for today and I just hadn't had a chance to put it together. Can you tell this is a quick oh-my-God-we're-running-late iPhone photo? Phew.
It was a wonderful day and I'm wiped out (in a good way). See you tomorrow!
