Daniel & I were married in May and went to Rome in August for the Sposi Novelli. The Sposi Novelli was an opportunity for us to greet Pope Francis and receive a special papal blessing as we began our lives together! It was important for us as practicing Catholics to hear encouraging words and see the support of the church. We knew we were starting a family and it was the perfect opportunity to travel before having kids. Pope Francis was actually the first person we told that we were expecting and he prayed a special blessing over the baby. It strengthened our faith in our marriage and was a special once in a lifetime moment!
