Heavenly Father blessed us with the sweetest treasure, to love & hold & keep forever.
We adore our beautiful angel, sent to us straight from Heaven. She has brought such a sweet spirit into our home and filled our hearts with an even greater love and happiness as a family of four! A couple of Sundays ago my amazing husband gave our sweet Tatum the sweetest blessing! I will forever remember and cherish his words and hopes and prayers for our little girl. I’m grateful for a wonderful husband who leads our family and provides the best example- Him blessing our babies will always be some of my favorite memories. One thing that especially stood out that I loved that he said a couple of times was that he hopes Tatum will always have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father and that she will always know that He LOVES her! Isn’t it crazy to think that He loves our children even more than we do?! I too pray that Tatum will always know her worth, that she will always know her parents love her SO much, that she will have her own personal testimony of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, and follow Him, & that she knows and loves her Father in Heaven and live her life in a way that is pleasing to Him.
It was an incredibly special day that we were able to share with both sets of our parents and with some of our close friends! We had a little luncheon at our home afterwards in honor of this special day, so that’s what some of these photos are from 🙂 My childhood friend (who is AMAZINGLY talented) Whitney Perdue hand painted this gorgeous banner for the blessing. I based everything else off of that and went with the theme “Our Sweetest Blessing”. I kept it simple with white and glass serving bowls (most found at HomeGoods or TJ! I love looking for serveware at both.) I didn’t want to go crazy with decor, so I just used lots of pretty flowers to add the perfect pops of color and spring vibes. I loved how it turned out! I will try and link as much as I can below:
