Last Friday we jetted off to Northern Virginia for the weekend in order to celebrate my sweet niece Sophie's 1st Birthday.
My little family stayed at my sister and brother in laws along with my 2 brothers and my mom.
It was even more fun than I had imagined ~ a true slumber party!
There is nothing like spending time with the people we love most.
It brings you back to all the things that are really important in this life.
Who could be stressed spending time with such a gorgeous little girl like my niece Vera.
That smile, her laughter....makes the frustrating things in life...well, less frustrating.
Meeting my cousin Kathryn's son Peter for the first time was amazing.
I feel like I have been like an honorary big sister to her and her 3 siblings.
I have traveled around the world with them, watched them grow from the day they were born.
To hold her beautiful son in my arms felt incredible!
(It was Peter's 1 month birthday!)
And seeing my favorite Aunt with her firstborn grandchild?
I don't have the words....
I got to see my daddy.
My Pop Pop.
Who will be celebrating his 90th birthday in a few short weeks!
And spending time with the 3 people I could never live without.
Who, unfortunately take the brunt of my stresses and patiently endure this crazy life we live.
I love them more than anything and hope they know it.
