This week was extra fun for us because we had my sister and her husband in town. I had not seen my sister in a year – a YEAR! That just seems entirely too long for sisters to be separated, right? It was such a treat taking them to all of our favorite spots – Strands Beach at Dana Point, the shops at Laguna, Old Towne Orange, Newport Beach, Balboa Island, the Wedge (this spot where surfers catch scary huge waves), Fashion Island, the list goes on and on. We had so much fun visiting and shopping together. What’s interesting living 1800 miles away from your family is that you learn to appreciate them 100x more. I think my sister and I actually talk more now that we are so far apart than we did when we were only 170 miles apart. Learning to appreciate our families more has been one of the many gifts this experience has brought us.
This weekend we are headed to San Diego to meet up with some of my Mississippi and Alabama relatives who are visiting. We are going kayaking and I actually can’t wait!
Y’all have a beautiful weekend – XO –
