i always knew that my family would be spread far across the country. we grew up moving every couple of years and so, we honestly don't know what it's like to stay in one place. i'm surprised that i live in such close proximity to my parents. but well, my siblings make up for my surprise. one lives out the east coast, the other in so cal, another in the northwest. we're scattered. and we rarely get to all come together at once.
that's why this family reunion was such a big deal. and it was a blast! it was really important to me that we get some good family photos and so i decided that i would make sure that it happened. (for the pictures that i was in and couldn't take, my good friend christine came and helped out! i am so grateful and indebted to her for allowing me to be in my family photo!!)
here i am with my siblings. what a fun group! i am really lucky to have such awesome brothers, and a sister!
