Just a photo blog today — keeping busy with family here and such. I’ll try to get a proper (knit-focused) shot of the shawl up soon, and more commentary.
After the service, chatting with Fr. (They are reminiscing about our trip together to the state fair last year!) Notice the footwear. After a long morning of various stresses, I decided not to fight it. Yes, she wore her army-green Crocs for 1st communion.
The gorgeous cake — shout out to Bravo Bakery! Don’t you love the flowers made of fruit instead of frosting? Coming to St. Paul? Hit Bravo.
