We’ve been MIA all weekend due to a lovely trip to my hometown Atlanta. As one of eleven siblings, family get-togethers are no small celebration!
The occasion this time was the 25th Wedding Anniversary of my aunt and uncle. Theirs is a marriage which has profoundly impacted me as many of my happy childhood memories were spent in their home. It was said at their celebration that the status symbol of our society (which used to be finances and beauty,) is now longevity of marriage. Rare it is to find a couple who are not just sticking it out, but rather, sincerely and selflessly loving eachother! What a testimony!
Our weekend included crazy cousin fun, Grandenny’s pancake brunch with great-grandparents, sweet memory-making with all the “woman-folk” cooking in the kitchen and late night tea & laughter with my mother and sisters by the fire.
Sisters are just the best! Here’s to us growing old and wearing purple and big hats and reminiscing about old times. We’re gonna be a crazy bunch of old ladies someday!
