This past year has been the first time I have lived more than 30 minutes from my family. Being left out of celebratory gatherings, shopping trips and casual family dinners tugs at my heart from time to time, especially as the seasons change. I realize I am not alone in this feeling – some may even say I am lucky! I still live in the same state as my family, but I miss the convenience of living nearby. Therefore, I have been looking forward to the weekend for quite some time! Ian and I will be traveling back to my hometown to celebrate my cousin’s wedding! I hope you all have a great weekend!
