I spent about 24 hours visiting my family and having girl-time with my mom and sister. When they broke out the rifle before noon to shoot empty cans and water bottles, it was time for me to head home. I’ve mentioned before that my family is slightly (VERY) country-fried. I sometimes feel the need to just shake my head. And quickly take my designer shoes and bags back to the city where I belong.
Today would have been the due date for the twins. It’s been slightly difficult. At the same time, it’s nice to feel a real sense of closure. No longer will I have to think: “I should still be pregnant with them.” I spent a lovely evening with A and the Hubs playing outside in the sprinklers and watching her enjoy a popsicle. I was a nice evening to remind me that even though I’ve been through the ringer the past few months, I have a lot to be thankful for.
I got side-tracked looking through old pictures while uploading some from this evening. Thought I’d share them here. These were taken last year and they all have very little to no editing (well, except the watermark, of course). These were taken down in the Texas Hill Country. If you ever get down that way, Texas makes fabulous wine and there are some great little wineries to stop at and spend a few hours. Enjoy.
