The past few weeks have been filled with family visits and I didn't expect that I was going to be filled with so much emotion from their visiting. Having family come one right after the other was quite a roller coaster and I didn't expect the joy, the laughter, the deep conversations and love that would accompany each visit. Then when each pair of family left I was torn, and felt a piece of my life went missing. Both Daxton and I would just hold each other after seeing them off and shed some tears. I would try to be brave as he told me he was sad, and didn't want his friends to go.
As much as I love this adventure we are on here in Boston, to have new uncharted territory be explored with just our little family. It has been equally hard being so far away from family. Having the joy knowing my babies were making relationships with Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. It's wild to love something so much but also feel so much missing. Its a beautiful process, because it refines and makes relationships even stronger. It helps me to not take things for granted and to remember the importance of life.
We took Don and Jessi to Maine, one of Don's lifelong goals. It was a really beautiful day and we even got
lobster while in Maine.
