Back to Reality

How does an auntie say goodbye to these sweet faces? I hardly know...
Commence re entry into a life filled with remodel dust and boxes that need to unpacked. Sniff. 

I had the good fortune to fly home last week to celebrate the birthdays of my two favorite little people - my nephews. They were born two years and about a month apart so my sister decided a joint party would be a fun and simpler way to celebrate both little munchkins. Long story short, I spent 5 days lolly gagging with the little boys, my  three sisters and my folks too. There was a trip to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch as well as the birthday party, lots of family dinners and some watching of football. Come Sunday afternoon, the exodus began with my sister and her husband heading back to St. Louis. Next, Ali (my other sis) flew back to South Carolina and then last night, it was my turn to head back to Colorado. A few tears were shed as is customary for my family. Why can't we just enjoy the time we have together instead of getting all blue and wishing we didn't have to part? I don't know. But saying goodbye hardly seems to get easier. On the bright side, my dear Ike was waiting for me when I arrived and was so kind and welcoming which was just what I needed. There's always a silver lining....

  1. those boys, they are oh so precious. Your trip home sounds like it was amazing, and your family... I know the feeling.

    Have a good rest of the week {boxes and all}
