This post was difficult to create, mainly because I wanted to post almost every picture I had taken from the day. A few weeks ago our dear friend Sister Josephine took her First Vows in Chicago to become a nun with the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. Now if you aren't familiar with this ceremony, it is a BIG DEAL - like a wedding. There were so many family and friends and sisters there, and (I know this sounds a little cliche but I'm going to say it because it's true) it was a day filled with love and joy. I have rarely seen a person more completely joyful and peaceful with what they have chosen to do with their lives than Sister Josephine. It was a truly beautiful day, and I was so grateful to be a part of it.
Now, if you know Sister Josephine, I'm sure you've seen this face before. I found it fitting that it was literally the first picture I took of her from the day.
