Notre Dame Kick-off! Primping begins...

Well here it is - August 13th!  Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football begins in 18 days on August 31st!

Primping at "The Bend" (as in South Bend, Indiana) has begun.  Lots of pre and post game parties are on the horizon! SO much yard work and projects to do but it is a labor of love!   Go Irish! 

The season begins in August this year with sunshine and temps in the 80s.  By the time the last game is played this season, Thanksgiving will be one week away and most likely we will be shoveling snow.  An outdoor fireplace in South Bend, Indiana, is a MUST for any football gatherings!  :-)  

Walking campus at dusk in the summer is one of my favorite things to do.  It s SO quiet and peaceful before the students arrive in a few weeks.  The stunning doors of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.  

The Golden Dome as the sun disappears for the day.  A brilliant spotlight shines upon Mary as she watches over all of us atop the famous Administration Building.

Candles burn in the Grotto 365 days a year.  Such an amazing, blessed place!  These were taken with my iphone - my apologies.  :-(

The Virgin Mary atop her Grotto watches over students and visitors from around the world who come to visit her here.
