We’re just back from Stockholm where my parent’s threw Alec a gorgeous naming party in my cousin’s beautiful garden. All our friends and family gathered to meet and welcome Alec.
Instead of a christening or baptism, we shared our thoughts about Alec’s name and how we chose it, and introduced his godparents. Then we planted a cherry blossom tree for him at the side of the house. It was our way of bringing Alec into our community and introducing him to some of the people who we hope he will grow up with.
It was a wonderful day with amazing weather and so much love in the air. Fabulous!
