As we were seated for the papal blessing, we realized our Newman Center friends, Tim and Sara, were seated right next to us! Without knowing it, we had all decided to honeymoon in Rome at the same time and receive a papal blessing. 6 years later, we're living in the same city, and Sara and I are in the same Catholic women's Bible study.
I love looking back at the photos from our honeymoon, especially from the day of our papal blessing. I know our marriage was strengthened by the graces we received that day. How cool is it that we got to spend some of the first days of our new life together in Rome?! Oh, to be able to go back...and eat lots and lots of gelato.
Today, 6 years after our papal blessing, things are equally as adventurous and romantic! There is rarely a dull moment with our three little musketeers.
