Holy Trinity Church in Gainesville is beautiful. This photo does not begin to show how majestic it is:

Here is the schedule for a lovely day (I was so happy to hear the other talks, especially Lucille's story of the Blessed Mother at work in her life):
Meanwhile, back in New York, these two were leaving for a 1920s themed dance with friends. My babies need to stop all this growing up!
