A child’s First Communion is a sacred milestone which often requires up to two years of religious education and preparation to receive. This religious occasion traditionally includes special attire and accessories. Girls often wear beaded hairpieces and veils, and gowns specifically designed for the occasion. These items frequently become treasured family heirlooms, so parents seek out a memorable and well-crafted wardrobe for the important event. Andrea’s Beau, Fantaisie Kids, and Simply Charming offer angelic, one-of-a-kind gowns, veils, gifts, hairpieces, and other accessories to commemorate and celebrate this special day.

Fast forward to mompreneurship. I still have the same, if not more, life stuff. I still have my list of to-do’s. I even alerted myself that I need to take a day off to complete these tasks by marking them on my calendar. Yet they either remain undone or, worse, I spend the day feeling guilty that I’m not “at work”.
