It’s been a family-filled day for David and me today. Yesterday was Cole, David’s brother-in-law’s birthday. His wife, Maddie (David’s sister) gave him a birthday party tonight and we went to see that. Cole’s three sisters all have kids and Maddie is pregnant with their first child, so it’s nice to see the new generation of the family starting. We had a great time visiting with them.
Even though I’m close with my family and love them beyond words, it’s nice to have family in the same town that I can see whenever I want to visit. I have always been so independent that it’s weird now to feel myself having a real desire to be close to family and spend time with them. But it’s a nice kind of weird.
We are also leaving Thursday morning to go visit my parents and little sister in Florida. I cannot wait. I haven’t seen my parents since Christmas, and the last time I saw them before that was LAST Christmas. It stinks being so far away from my family, and not being able to take much time off work to go visit. But we finally worked it out, and I am stupid excited about getting to see my family and take a little break from the every day.
I can’t wait to update next week with some great new recent pictures of my family! I’m especially excited to make some new memories, as this will be David’s first time to visit my parents’ house and also his first time ever on a plane! It’s going to be so cool to share that experience with him.
That’s all for tonight! Have a good one, everybody. I’ll see you back tomorrow for our next letter in the ABCs of Me series!
