Advent Week 3: joy

We had a joyful 3rd Sunday of Advent. We spent the afternoon on a chilly walk around Notre Dame’s campus with my dad and some friends. Grabbed a sandwich and went to the ND/Boston College hockey game. It was a great game and the Irish upset Boston College which was so fun to watch. But the highlight of the day for me? Mass at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

Mass somehow feels elevated in those beautiful surroundings. And do you see the Advent wreath suspended from the ceiling? Beautiful.

That night a snowstorm hit and Sunday my family spent the day inside. Watching movies. Wrapping Christmas presents. Enjoying a leisurely dinner. It was a joyful weekend in many ways.

Now to power through a busy week before Winter Break starts. I think we’re all ready for a break from the early mornings (though I’ll still be up early but not 5:30am early).
