First Communion Candles


The month of May is filled with so many beautiful Marian Devotions and it is typically the month when the Sacraments are celebrated.

Just popping in quickly to post a picture of this beautiful First Holy Communion Candle that was definitely Hand-Made With LOVE.

Thank you to my dear friend that is so incredibly talented and giving...from the kindness of her heart, the First Communion Children will process with these gorgeous keepsake candles.

May the Light of Christ shine brightly on this day and always.

"Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness but will have the Light of life.
 ~ John 8:12

Easter Blessings 2016


Our family has so much to be thankful for, and these past few weeks are no exception.  The days continue to pass so quickly!  My desire to journal here about our days of celebrations and family joys is enormous...but the time to do so, is limited.  There simply is no time to journal and share about all the happenings...

Math Lesson of the Day: 03.14.16

"...the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle..."

Spontaneously we decided to bake a Pi Pie to commemorate Pi Day.  What better way to celebrate than with a 'rounded' pie...3.14.16!

pretty, happy, funny, real: Happy Feet, Take Two


I did it.  I splurged on some shoes that will (hopefully) bring my feet many hours of comfort.  I wish my health insurance would cover the cost of good, quality shoes.  :o)
