...surrounded by family at Jeremy's aunts' house in Southern Illinois. I know I've said it before, but when I married Jeremy I hit a double jackpot - not only do I get an amazing husband but I inherited a pretty terrific bunch of realitives. I'm so thankful that his mom and sisters are some of my dearest friends. His extended family is also pretty great. They are probably the most welcoming and generous group of people I've ever met. I can be
a little very quiet and socially awkward when I first meet people, but this group has always made me feel welcome and at ease. To say that our annual Memorial Day Bash (we are a little behind this year) is one my favorite weekends of the year is an understatement.
