This morning I began getting text messages at 5:15 from my dear friend Kim. She had her new baby boy at 4:50 and he was a healthy 7 lb. 10 oz. I'm so excited that Kash is finally able to meet the world and I'm excited to see him this afternoon!! This is the first picture I got of him and I'm sure there will be many more to come!! Congrats Kim and Kevin on your new baby!!
Today is Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, and both days hold a deep meaning to me. I was raised Catholic and we always celebrated the days leading up to Lent and the important days during Lent. Though Husband and I now go to a Protestant church, Lent will forever be important to me. Our church actually does celebrate Lent and Ash Wednesday and I'm very happy that I can continue this tradition with Husband because his previous church never did. Living so close to Louisiana has also impacted my knowledge and appreciation for Mardi Gras. Even though many see Mardi Gras as one huge celebration, there is actually a lot of meaning behind the holiday. Read the link I included to learn a little more about the tradition of it. And, today, enjoy a huge feast!!
Loving and learning a little more each day.
