Doesn't my Lilly Pulitzer dress scream "spring"? It was a little cold to be wearing it, but it was the perfect Easter dress! Also, you can't really see it in the pictures, but FI gave me a fabulous Coach bag as a confirmation gift! It's the brown monogram slouch bag, with lavender scarf print and patent leather down the middle. Very cute, and he picked it out all by himself!
On the more religious side of confirmation gifts, I received a very nice set of pearl rosary beads with a brass confirmation case from my mom, who has been very supportive of my decision to convert. I was very glad to have her at my confirmation! Additionally, I received a sweet card and token from Gram. Finally, FMIL surprised me with her mother's ("Ma" to FI) set of lovingly worn and cherished rosary beads. I was very touched by this gesture, and I hope that I can one day be the kind of Catholic, mother, and grandmother that she was.
