sister love.



We got back on Saturday from our trip to Texas last week for my family's family reunion, and I can 100% honestly say that I did not want to come home! I am going through some major nieces-and-nephews withdrawals, and I haven't been able to stop talking about missing my family and my sisters ever since we got back. I think Aaron is starting to get a little worried that I won't stop, either, until we find a way to somehow live closer to them... Why do California and Virginia (and/or Ohio) have to be so far apart?!

But meanwhile, to make myself feel better and so I don't get too overwhelmed from the 1000+ photos I took last week, above are some silly photos my sisters and I took at Galveston beach last Thursday. I would say these photos are a pretty accurate depiction of how we act when we are together...so you can imagine why being apart from them is seeming like an absolute crime right now. My only regret is that we didn't get my 4 brothers and mom & dad in on the jumping fun too.... We'll get 'em next time. ;)

I love my family.

  5. That's such a cute picture! I miss my sister now. And if that makes you feel any better, she is 6000 miles away :( In comparison, yours are not so far! :)

    Glad you got some family time!

  14. jumping shots are the best! i don't think i'll ever tire of them. i hate being so far away from siblings and their babies. every time i get together with my brothers i feel like it's NEVER long enough. glad you got some fun times with yours though! :)

  15. you all look like a fun bunch! sisters are the best. i have one and she lives 3000 miles away. it's not easy, but whenever we do see each other we have the best time together.
