Celebrating the Small Things

Celebrate blog hop

This week for Celebrating the Small Things, I’m going to be brief because I’m still recovering from a super-awesome week which I’m still processing and where I got really sick (combination of lots of people, very little sleep and not super great weather). I’m still not entirely over it.

And that’s all I really want to say. The past week in Philadelphia was awesome, not just or even mostly because of the pope, but because of all the fascinating and diverse people I got to meet, who I will never ever forget.

So, that’s what I’m celebrating! A chance to experience once in a lifetime events, and then to rest up and process. Life is good.

How was your week? What are you celebrating?

I survived the wmof!
I’m celebrating that. Now 4 the weekend. I’m kind of exhausted and mind blown.
Here’s some pics.

Our Lady of knots. People write prayers on ribbons and tie them and pray for prayers they see.

From the women’s ordination conference which I also attended the (in)famous theresa Kane prepares to share what she’d say to pope Francis.

Tomorrow I will be at the festival and Sunday am volunteering at the papal mass. So excited. Philly is crazy now!
