Is there anything in the world better than family? I have never laughed harder or felt more myself than in the company of my siblings and cousins (who are like siblings). We have tons of pictures of us when we went to Disney World, and at my grandparent’s 50th wedding anniversary, but if we had pictures together like the ones the Devaney’s do where they are ALL together at their favorite place, I’d be so grateful. There’s no doubt in my mind that Paige, Hannah, Emily, Elise, Elizabeth, and now baby Ward, are going to grow up to be just as close as I am with my cousins, but the fact they’ll have these pictures to remember the days of their childhood at their family home on the beach will be so sweet. I like to think that someday these photographs will be displayed at graduation parties, and decorating the tables at their weddings, and even hanging on the walls of their own home. And to part of their memories, well, that makes my heard super happy.
Don’t you just love Jo Ann?
Thank you for inviting me back to your family year after year. I love you all so much!
