i loved everything about this weekend -- how hard i laugh when i am with my dad, my stepmom's excitement over the tiniest of details, seeing my dad's relationship with his brother, how my uncle hugs me so tight that i can't see a thing -- and i loved my aunt glenda's precious baby belly and that it means our family is growing. i loved it all and i already miss it.
a big part of me would live at home forever and never, ever leave my family or the room with lime green walls. but life doesn't work that way and this is a big, big world with so much to see and do. the next best thing is to have a weekend like that.
