I think I’ve told you how blessed I am to have such a wonderful family and groups of friends, but just in case I forgot, I AM SO BLESSED.
Now, that I’ve cleared that up, let me tell you a little about my weekend on Long Island visiting with my Dad’s side of the family. I can’t thank Patti, Kim and Rachel enough for planning the whole event and for my Aunt Nancy for hosting it!
On Saturday, Josh and I got up at 5am and hit the road at 6 to drive up to Long Island and celebrate our wedding family style! My Aunt Nancy hosted a bunch of us (aunts, uncles, great aunts, cousins, second cousins, brothers, sisters, and many types of in-laws) in her gorgeous backyard in Old Westbury and we had an absolute blast.
I find it so humbling to be showered with love, attention, and presents by your family. Yes, your family should love you but they don’t have to. And they certainly don’t have to go as above and beyond as ours did.
- Our face on a cake
- Delicious food
- Bride and Groom hats
- Games and prizes
- Presents galore
- Chatting and laughing all afternoon (seriously we were there from noon to 8:30pm!)
Almost all of the people at this shower are coming to the wedding and that is just one more reason why we love our family. They will travel and make it a priority to come and celebrate as Josh and I get married. What an amazing gift to give us!
I feel so loved today. And I hope you all do too!
Tell me what you think..
- Do you see your extended family often?
- Is it funny watching your cousins who were babies grow up and head of to college?
- What is one of your favorite childhood memories with your family?
