Three Cheers to Family Time.

by katelin on December 3, 2013

And I’m back.

Sort of.

I mean the real world is so overrated sometimes. And by sometimes I mean most times.

I just spent the past long holiday weekend with so much family it was glorious. And lovely. And wonderous. And just. It was the best. And it was just another one of those trips where I couldn’t possibly recap the whole thing, but rather just break it down in snippets.

This was the sunset every night. AND IT WASN’T BAD.
There were silly photo ops with cousins and siblings. There was a whole lot of “Oh My God” and teenager talk. There was so much food I’m pretty sure I’ve gained at least ten pounds. There was way too much wine drinking. There were golf tournaments and tearful speeches. There were so many laughs and so many hugs.


There were nights bundled up with scarves. There was the big group photo. There were rowdy game nights and long talks with family I don’t get to see that often. There was morning coffee with an ocean view. There was little time to read but rather to enjoy everyone’s company. There were pedicures and champagne. There was putt putt and fried oreos.


It was just the trip we all needed. And I only wish we could do again soon.


And how was your Thanksgiving? Did you have some fun family time? Good times? Fun times? Super times?


happy tuesday!
