Over the 4th of July weekend I shuffled off to Buffalo, as I often do, to visit with my amazing family. I always love to see my awesome aunts, uncles, and cousins (yes, we are one of those families that truly loves being in each others' presence - it's always non-stop chatter and loads of laughter), but there were three things that made this visit extra special. My cousin and his wife are pregnant and they decided to throw a huge family BBQ, wherein we'd all get to gather together (it's a rare occurrence that we're all in the same place at the same time; the last instance being at this same cousin's wedding a couple years back*, so this in itself was definitely something to celebrate). Plus, at the BBQ they would reveal the baby's sex (exciting!!) via cupcake (slightly more exciting!!) that would be filled with either blue or pink frosting. Drumroll please...... it's a boy! And the third cherry on top is that my sister flew up from Florida for the occasion, so I got a bonus visit with her.
I have to admit that I've been in a little bit of a funk lately, so being around my hilarious, inappropriate, loudmouthed, outspoken, witty, supportive, loving family was just the thing my soul needed. Simply put, this ragtag bunch make me sparkle.
^ disorganized, disheveled, distracted - so typical of this family
