P1130968

pond

Back at home after a family reunion in Waynesville, NC. These past months, so many of my thoughts trail back to this theme of family. Only now am I beginning to form a deep and genuine appreciation for all that that word entails.

I spent a majority of the time trailing E around the koi pond and chasing him chasing butterflies through the meadow outside the cottage. But I managed to eat lots of good food and catch up with relatives I see all too rarely.
Best of all, we got to see my brother who we have not seen since he shipped off to Basic Training (Air Force) last November.
