Here I am again, not bleeding onto the page with the story of my father's beautiful death (I just can't do it yet, and I don't know why), but just posting something lighthearted and fun. And what could be more fun than a "My Sunday Best" post by yours truly? (I can hear some of you saying, "Um...I can think of a few things." But here I go anyway.)
So it was just me being "one of the guys," which is sort of my wheelhouse after raising five sons. We spent the rest of the weekend moving furniture, hanging pictures, mounting television sets on walls, and shopping for different household necessities. (The house has already been rented from Feb. 1 until the end of the summer, from a construction company working on a project in the area. So right from the get-go, it's already proven to be a good investment!) Then at quitting time, the four of us stayed up til all hours, talking and laughing. It was a very productive, but also a very enjoyable, weekend.
One of the best things about being out at Notre Dame on a Sunday is having the opportunity to go to Mass at the Sacred Heart Basilica on campus. It is one of the most breathtaking churches I have ever seen (and now that I've been to Europe a few times, tagging along with my husband on his working trips, I've seen some indescribably beautiful churches).
And when you're at the Basilica, as a bonus you have a nice view of its next-door neighbor with that iconic golden dome on top, and the statue of the Blessed Mother perched up there, watching over all. (Hi, Mary!)
But now I'm back home. And now I need to head on over to Rosie's and see the Sunday Best outfits worn by some of the other bloggers I've come to know and love. You might want to check them out, too. (And you might want to check out the Saints Name Generator while you're at it, to see which heavenly friend has been chosen just for you in 2017.)
