Family came to visit!

My sincere apologies, friends. I haven’t been as on top of my writing these past couple of weeks.

I absolutely love writing and sharing my thoughts, ideas, and life with you. There are times I simply need to set my blogging aside for a bit for good and valuable reasons.

These past two weeks, I have been investing in family. That’s a pretty “good and valuable reason” wouldn’t you say? We live approximately 2500 miles away from our extended family, so we do not get to see grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins very often.

Recently, we had the pure joy of having Papa’s parents and his youngest sister visit us for a week!! During that time, I intentionally neglected my emails, my blog, my laundry, and more … because time with family is so very, very short. We try to take advantage of every minute we have with them.

We didn’t do anything crazy, fancy or extreme while they were here, we simply got to “do life” with them. Just BE together. Playing games, chatting, sharing stories, eating, swimming, laughing, enjoying the kids’ activities together and more. We loved every second of it and cherished the memories created. We hope it won’t be too long before we get to see them again.

(Side note: I was finally able to figure out how to easily get photos on the blog – thank you “blogstomp” – so I’ll share a few pictures with you below. Enjoy!)

Praying you have a wonderful week, friends!

To God be the Glory!
