So, I'm a little late with this today but I hope that you'll forgive me. I've been down South this weekend celebrating my Dad's wedding, which was a total blast. Like everyone, my family is a little (okay, a lot) odd but it brings me so much comfort and joy to spend time with them. When you get on with your family family, there is something so unique about hanging out with them, which I don't think you can recreate in any other way. People who have known you from birth, who share your family history and your genetics, and really love you? That is pretty special and I am so grateful that I have a big, weird, wonderful family that I like spending time with, because I know that not everyone has that. I hope you've all had fabulous, relaxing weekends!
