what's family?

a few weeks ago j & i made a weekend trip to my grandparent's home in deleware.
my father's side of the family is spread across the country.
for this early thanksgiving family came from california, north carolina, vermont & jersey.
my grandparents are 72/73.
at the end othe summer my grandmother was in a body boarding accident.
yes body boarding..
at 72.
my family's rad like that.
she walked away from the accident without serious injuries.
but we are all aware of what a close call the accident was.
to see the look on her face with all of us in her home was priceless.
for me that's family.

three years.

when i first tell people our story they're usually shocked.
you were engaged after how long??

three years later
& we're still here.

any other day,
things may have not turned out this way.
but they have,
and it is a blessing.

taylor swift put it best:
'you learn my secrets and you figure out why I'm guarded
you say we'll never make my parents' mistakes'

we definitely fit the mold for opposites attract.
but our values,
our goals,
& our love is the same.

my life has been turned upside down in three years.
a husband,
a home,
a dog,
and in five months a baby.

& this ride is just beginning.
j, thank you for the past three years.

ps you know you love my hat.
