If I could sum up my life in one word, it’s … “Blessed.” I’m the luckiest woman in the world, with a family I adore, a secure and exciting job, a loving family in good health (continued knocking on wood here) and a hobby that fulfills me more ever day. Last week, we were invited to celebrate a first birthday party that just confirmed all my blessings.
My cousin – whose style and grace is always inspiring – hosted this fun and colorful party to ring in her youngest child’s first year, but also to bring together the whole crew on my husband’s side of the family. Parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, brothers, sisters – it was a loaded, happy and loving family tree.
The kids played frisbee; the adults talked & drank sangria. The little ones took their turn on a pinata until candy finally showered down on them. And we all took in a beautiful, sunny Oregon summer day.
I’m thankful for every moment ‘m given with these incredible people, and for all the smiles they bring me. It’s a wonderful life!
