There are so many reasons to celebrate

There are so many reasons to celebrate life, some are big things like getting engaged, getting married, or having a baby (or two). And some are not so big like learning to write your name all by yourself, making cookies with someone you love or seeing a new ocean for the first time. But it is all the experinces that we each have that make us who we are, so no one experince is any more important than another. It’s my hope for this blog that I will share all kinds of experinecs big and small.

A few weekend ago I made the trip to  my home town for one last visit by my self. My husband wasn’t able to come because he was hard at work on our new home (which you will see new pictures of one day very soon), And once our babies get here I will no longer be allowed to fly without another adult, airline policy 1 adult per baby.

The main purpose of the trip when I schedualed it was to celebrate my totally amazing cousin Robert and his new wife Elif at a reception given by his parents at thier home.  They were married in earlier in the summer in California, which from the pictures looked like something that would make Martha Stewart very proud.

It was also a chance to see many of my aunts, uncles and cousins. And to top it off just a few days before the trip my sister got asked a very special question by her boyfriend, and now they are engaged!

It was a quick trip but filled with so much that it felt huge! Like I looked!

The Cookout!


Hey Sylvia, where are the rest of the guns?

Elif making her mint chocholate chip ice cream cone, they were so yum!



The host, Meryl Streep. Ok not really but she even sounded like her.

The next morning was the main event held at the grooms parents house, it was a wonderful time for everyone. The whole family was there and got to wish the newlyweds well, catch up with each other and eat some really delicious food. Ok so shoot me I had some lox, I just couldn’t resist it was screaming EAT ME! twice : )
