An exciting week for my family

| | | | |

Sorry for being away this week. It’s a big week for us. My family is visiting, touring our new home, spoiling my babies, and celebrating my youngest, who is turning one Saturday.

Not only are my parents and two of my four siblings here, my 95-year-old great-grandpa and grandparents stopped by as well. So for a couple of nights I had five generations under my one little roof.

You’d better believe I’ve been taking photos and videos up the ying yang. As well as working on a special project I’m excited to share! I never realized how fun it could be pulling memories and stories from the minds of my family predecessors.

More details soon. But for now, here’s a look at where I came from (and where I’m going).
