This December my sister, Alicia, and her family came to visit us for a WEEK! It was the best!!! There is nothing like having family in town, especially for the holidays. We had fun cooking some amazing food (horseradish crusted prime rib, anyone?), watching our growing boys, and just being together. This was the first taste of a vacation that we’ve felt in over two years. If you are new to the blog, you can find out why here.
My sister is my best friend, and we are both amazed/thrilled and so grateful for how well our husbands get along. I mean, these two are always joking around. We laughed and definitely cried some ugly tears throughout the week as well. I am thankful for family that is willing to come lift our spirits, love on us, and quite practically, wash our dishes. ;) It hasn’t always been easy to bridge the gap of living across the country with one sister struggling with normal parenting woes and a high stress career while the other sister is facing the the unimaginable with a baby on hospice. We’ve worked really diligently to stay on the same page and face the heart wrenching parts together. I am increasingly glad for every tough conversation, every tear shed, and our commitment to our friendship and sisterhood. This week wouldn’t have been possible without it. Alicia, Alfred, and Cy, we love you three so much! THANK YOU for visiting and making us smile! Come back soon!!! xoxo
Oh, and we snuck in a family session while they were here! It felt so good to pick up my camera again!
