Family Weekend…

This weekend will be one the first I have at home in quite some time – lately I’ve been hopping cities and hosting visitors (more of which arrive next week!), so to have a whole two days to myself is sounding pretty amazing at the moment… although obviously way too short. Which is why I’m planning on cutting out of the office early today to enjoy my Friday afternoon as well…

It’s funny – I was having a conversation the other day about how at this stage in life my younger sis and I are always off doing our own thing, and my parents doing theirs. We don’t have kids to tote over to the grandparents, or excuses to go on family vacations together, and I kind of miss that idea of having set time in the summer to spend with each other. We do, however, usually enjoy weekly dinners together, and this Sunday we’ll be celebrating my parent’s 35th wedding anniversary….

I’ve learned so much from watching my mom and dad over the years. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized how much they’ve taught us about relationships and family and hard work and love.I can’t wait to hang out on their back patio this weekend, and celebrate them with family and friends.  Cheers to them – to sticking through the hard times, and celebrating the best in each other.

Have a happy little weekend, all…
