gratitude: being home
Pedro and I made our first solo road trip to St. Louis together this weekend. All my siblings and all of our dogs are home, and we have been having a great time together. We never have quite long enough (even during the weekend that includes the longest day of the year), but we make the most of our time together. We spent the afternoon with my grandpa, then Pedro and Dory (that little white ball of fur next to my sister's feet) joined us for a family soccer game. I feel so grateful that we all want to be around each other and make an effort to do so. These weekends together really help to resettle me and are so good for keeping our relationships solid.
Before heading out, I'll enjoy a few more moments talking to my mom about her knitting projects and listening to the boys yell at the Liverpool game. Life is good.
