I am missing them extra today and am totally jealous that they've spent the entire day together going on adventures down memory lane to find the first house that we lived in! I can hardly wait to see the photos! I just dug through all my old photos to see if I have any pictures of when we lived there. I didn't find any of the house itself but I found a few from those days that made me smile.
Aunt Mary spent countless hours letting me walk up her legs, flip over and shout "ta da" to my hearts content. She was my first playmate and best friend. I am still amazed at how much patience she must have had to deal with me. I was an awful bossy little thing.
So there you go I successfully found pictures of the grass, parts of the house siding and driveway! Come to think of it I couldn't even draw you a floor plan for that house and I have no idea what the inside looked like but I could tell you where Kayla and I played slip and slide in the front yard and danced our little hearts out in the back yard and those are the memories that matter.
And on another note about memories...
I am super thankful for friends in my life who keep showing up for me. Thank you, friends! No seriously, I'm in major transition right now and meaningful relationships filled with mutual respect, love and encouragement are lifting me right up. It's so cool to be surrounded by beautiful women.
The countdown to my mom's visit is underway! I can hardly wait to have her here in San Jose. It's been since my birthday in January!
I love my family, my life, our memories. I am feeling super sappy and nostalgic now.
