Our First receives her First Communion
So yesterday was about the most awesome-emotional-happy-fun day for our family. Sofia Vincenza celebrated her First Communion and was surrounded by family and friends that adore her and were happy to witness this milestone along with our little family of five. The star of our day wore a white long gown, with intricate lace detail and simple rhinestone embellishment, handmade by a little old Italian woman from Mesagne oh, about 30 years ago...the dress got a mini-makeover and worn again!
It was a day that was absolutely filled with all the necessary ingredients for a happy, lasting memory.
The weather was perfect, the family was near and the heart was full...
Sofia's school only allows the parents to sit with the candidate receiving their First Eucharist which meant some alone time with the queen-for-the-day in mass. Which was wonderful.
It had been a very long time since the last time it was just the three of us sitting in a pew together.
The children performed the "Our Father" and saying it was breathtaking was a major understatement. I was in awe of their dedication and mesmerized from beginning to end as our choir sang and the children performed the prayer. Thankfully I took a video of it to enjoy over and over again. It was brilliant.
Thank you to Zio Antonio for snapping this moment for us!
Communion is over, time to get silly!
Reunited...my two little girls.

Time to party! Naturally, the dessert table is never bare at a Pitcco/Palumbi Party!
Not one, but two cakes for my sweet toothed-gal!
A day overcome with happy emotions, nestled in with family and friends, basking in the sunshine of a beautiful milestone for our Sofia Vincenza! Love my girl so very much!
