About three years ago, Greg and I attended the Engagement Retreat with Amy and John at the De Paul Center in Montebello, California. On the second evening, the retreat leaders asked each couple to pick a candle randomly from the altar and on each votive candle holder was a name of a couple from the retreat. Upon receiving the candle, we were to take the candle with us and pray for that couple. Greg and I came home with Amy's and John's candle that evening. It is truly a blessing to witness their marriage grow throughout the last three years. To boot, they even had a little boy last year!
Yesterday, I had the chance to meet up with Amy and their baby boy, Nathan. He is turning one this coming August and they wanted some photos to document his first birthday. Isn't he just adorable!? One particular funny moment was when he had to take photos with the cake and he started crying because he was opposed to getting dirty. But we put him in the tub immediately after and he was smiling and laughing again. Thank you guys for the fun times!
