After reuniting on facebook (after 6+ years), two of my dear cousins concocted a road trip to Kansas to visit M and lil' ol' me. :) I can't describe our most excellent time together any better than my cousin, Beth, who already posted about our time together on her blog Little Tree. We literally had to force ourselves to go to bed and stop talking. Despite our infrequent reunions and length of time between visits we shared everything with one another and felt absolutely no awkwardness. We haven't known each other as adults until now, yet we seemed to have everything in common with one another and it feels as though we are sisters/best friends. M absolutely adores her cousins, Beth and Brenda and wishes they could have stayed and played. We're so grateful that this trip worked out so well! Can't wait for our next reunion --you are welcome Any time! Best of luck in your careers, dear cousins and I hope to see you again soon! I guess Facebook isn't just for teenagers competing for the most friends after all.
With much love and many hugs ~ S
Side note: M and I spent the rest of Sunday evening outside. I opened the garage to grab the wheelbarrow to haul the squash and pumpkin plants that I had pulled to the dumpster and found two baby toads (Woodhouse's again) near the drain in the garage. Maia had a temporary pet toad until I told her that it would be happiest playing in the damp soil. Sure were cute little buggers. :)
