I had a really great weekend at my niece’s grad.  The only thing missing were my men.  Glenn and Nicholas had various prior commitments that kept them away and days away from them are just plain weird.  BUT, I loved everything else about this weekend.  My brother, Tim, has always had a special place in my heart and his family is equally awesome.  His wife is loving, kind and caring.  His children are fun-loving, intelligent and kind-hearted.

As Chloe so eloquently said in her last post, austerity of family is not what we’re after.  We aim to do better.  This being said, I hope to have plans firmed up to visit them again before the permanent-marker tattoo I gave my nephew fades.  That should give me a few weeks…  😉

Take care and enjoy your family!  s. xoxo
