I love the Facebook memories feature!!
5 years ago today, my life became different. I met all three of my baby cousins at the same time on their first visit to Chicago/Whiting!!
My Mom and I met them at the park and we had pizza, tossed frisbees, put our toes in the water, and skipped rocks. It was such a purely good time. I was amazed by my cousin (and role model) Matt and his awesome wife Angie for having created such an awesome little tribe. I felt blessed to call them my own.
Fast forward 4 years, I move to California. I am now a quick road trip away from the gang and begin making bi-monthly excursions down I-10 to soak up some more Cuz Love. Visits would fill my heart up as they would give me flashbacks of hanging out with my own cousins at their age getting muddy and "double jumping" each other on the trampoline.
Flash forward to today and I can see them in a flash with a short drive across Phoenix! My ventures having landed me in their backyard on a weekly basis! We get pool sessions, nail polish parties, sleep overs, hair braiding, dirt bike riding, storytelling, game playing, and more. We still skip rocks, toss frisbees, and put our toes in the water, now at the Salt River.
I am grateful that this day 5 years ago was the beginning of a life long love. Grateful for family. Grateful for love. Just downright grateful.
Bless ups, babes.
May your love grow.
May your smiles stay wide.
May your hearts always be full.
May your childhood be long.
We are all children at heart.
May you keep it at the forefront of your mind❤
