Daily Diary: Meet My New Goddaughter

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 8.09.43 AM

I feel so blessed! As an only child, I never thought that I would be asked to be someone’s godmother. Figured it just wouldn’t be in my cards. But this weekend, I had the honor of standing for little Miss Victoria during her ceremony in Rhode Island alongside my husband who was asked to be godfather as well.

Isn’t she such a doll? Audrey – as you all know – is my best friend and Getting Gorgeous business partner. She and Matt are Caleb’s godparents as well. We found each other late in life but our bond is strong. Our children love one another as if they are related. It is the most special thing.  On Sunday, I officially became part of their spiritual family.

After the ceremony, we all drove to Audrey’s mother house for the after party. The kids changed into more comfortable clothing and played hockey while the parents enjoyed the view.

Natalie was always the only girl until Victoria came around. When I told her Audrey was having a girl she was BEYOND thrilled!! FINALLY – ANOTHER GIRL TO PLAY WITH!! LOL

It was a beautiful weekend for a beautiful family. Bill and I will wear our titles proudly for the rest of our lives.
