Clarice Blessing dress

Your Blessing Gowns: Lily

Oh, this darling family is so sweet! Baby Lily’s mama, Kristi, took some time to share her thoughts with us:

“Last summer I ordered a blessing gown, your Clarice gown, for my daughter Lily. I spent several weeks looking for the perfect gown for her blessing day because this is a once in a lifetime experience and a very special day for our family! This is our first child, and I wanted a perfect dress for her. Ordinarily, I do not worry about things like this. In fact, it took me about five minutes to pick my own wedding dress! However, having a baby changed my life, and I love taking my time to make sure Lily has the best.

I finally decided on your Clarice gown. I shopped online at many places, but the decision did not get difficult until I narrowed it down between two at YOUR shop. I finally had to take a vote, and we decided on the Clarice.

We LOVE the little gown and we received so many compliments on it…Thank you so much for the beautiful gowns at your store and for giving us a special memory!”

It’s the Little Things

Little things keep me grounded.

Let me explain: I often find myself running full-speed with a brain on fire. I love most of the sweet obligations & tasks that fill my days, but sometimes I get so wound up trying to get all the moves right and be everywhere (on time) that I get stuck in my head, bouncing with ideas, to-dos and worries. Then, mercifully, some small thing catches my attention and brings me back to the present: my four-year-old grabbing my face and looking me straight in the eye to tell me what is on her mind right! now!, the sunrise as we drive home from an early-morning violin lesson, a little voice singing softly (oblivious to listening ears). Yesterday, it was this sweet valentine from my little man. Life is full of beautiful little things!

What are the small things that anchor your days and bring everything back into focus?
