Grace got herself ready for church this morning — all by herself. She did her own hair, picked out a church dress and picked her shoes and socks. We’re so pleased when she takes the initiative to do this! We hope to honor her little spirit by praising her for choosing such fun barrettes and off we go. Our church is called Mary Queen of Peace, although it could be called Lily Pulitzer Queen of Fashion or Dooney and Bourke Kings of Purses. The families all seem so put together and beautiful. I had a little feeling of joy as we walked in the sanctuary thinking about Grace, the meaning of her name, and the fantasticness of her outfit. I hope Grace continues to show her flair as she grows up.
