--- 1 ---I, like many others around the world, watched this week's conclave and election of Pope Francis with excitement. I love all the old-school traditions that go into the election process: no electronics, the secret ballots, the smoke signals. When Pope Francis was announced, I felt an overwhelming sense of joy that I truly did not expect. After all, I knew nothing about the man before that moment, yet I felt very emotional, filled with such a feeling hope and joy. I pray that Pope Francis' humility and grace will be just what our church needs to overcome some of the issues that face us today.
Messy Wife, Blessed Life's suggestion and moving to Blog Lovin'. I'm taking it as an opportunity to weed out the blogs that I no longer read regularly and to cut down on my overall number of subscriptions... something which is long overdue!

Tonight's meatless meal: I'm finally getting around to trying one of the very first things I ever pinned on Pinterest: this crockpot Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup. The kids and I will have grilled cheese sandwiches with it, and DH (who isn't Catholic) will probably have a cold meat sandwich with his. Tomato Basil Soup is one of my favorites, and adding Parmesan seems like it should only make it better, right? I guess we'll find out tonight!
