What I wore Sunday - My first!!

 
 
I decided to join the party!! I am linking up with Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday.  I was excited about this and last night I pulled apart my closet and my drawers to figure out what to wear.  I wanted to be slightly creative and wear something I do not wear all the time, because I usually wear the same thing most Sunday.  Do not worry, I did not make too much of a mess . . . 3/4 of our closet is actually taken up by my husband!
 
So here it is . . .

 


First, I am not sure what I am doing with my hands.  I think I am saying, "Please just hurry up and take the photos because we may be late for mass."  Ignore the books strewn on our floor . . . the boys seem to forget we have a book basket to put them in.

For the outfit:
The dress- The Limited (I have had this dress for 15 years!)
The jacket- Came from TJ MAXX
The scarf- AC MOORE (with a 50% off coupon)
I have boots on, but you totally cannot see them.  And that is a good thing, because I cannot remember where I got them.

And here I am with my cutest 4 yr old!!  He is sporting some of the sharpest hand me downs we have! Seriously, we have not had to spend much money on clothes for the boys AT ALL, thanks to some amazing families in our town.

Have a great week everyone!

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Two Years Ago . . .

Two years ago today, I was on the other side of the world.  I woke up too early.  Too excited and anxious to sleep.  My husband and I lay in bed, chatting about the day ahead of us.  After years of hoping and praying, the day that felt like it would only ever be in my dreams, was finally here.  It was really real.  And when a dream comes true, and you are in awe of God changing hearts and moving mountains to bring you to a moment, there is little more to do than to pray and praise.  And so, we moved our conversation from our hotel room to the Catholic Church across the street.  Yes, in a land where so few have ANY belief system, God saw it fitting to place us in a hotel that just happened to be across from a Catholic Church.  And so we knelt in the back, as the faithful in the front, finished what must have been the rosary, and prayed.  We prayed our own silent prayers as our ears were filled with the melodious sound of a rhythmic prayer in Mandarin.

As we crossed the street to head b…
