All Because a Girl Loved a Boy...the tale of two gowns

I was struck by the two ends of a spectrum this weekend represented. Both brought about because a girl loved a boy. And he loved her back. I have seen so much evidence of that this weekend.

I had the thrill of seeing my daughter try on wedding gowns. I saw the tears come when she found the gown of her dreams. I felt my own throat tighten at how beautiful she was in that gown. (and no this is not THE gown)

I also had the thrill of seeing another gown, placed on this handsome baby boy. Today he was baptized into the family of faith in a gown just as beautiful. As my daughter said to me this morning, "Now it really is a family gown." The same gown his sister wore when she was baptized. It too brought tears of joy.

The tale of two gowns, each one because a girl loved a boy...


  1. I am so happy for you, Martha. I am sure you have been on cloud 9 all weekend.

  2. Oh my! Make me all weepy. What a beautiful weekend. Congratulations Martha.

  3. What a wonderful weekend -- even when seen through tears. The christening gown is still gorgeous!

  4. What a wonderful weekend. Erin needs to give lessons on how to hold a baby in a CG, she has it down.

  5. Sounds like there's a lot going on in your family. Mine also. My younger daughter got married in September and my older one is expecting grandchild #2 in about 4 weeks. Congratulations!
