magic monday

I took a trip to Burlington on Saturday to see my family & attend a celebration of my great Aunt Betty's life after she passed away in the beginning of February. Every time I go home I appreciate getting to spend time with my family and friends, and this time was even more special because I got to see my extended family that I only see maybe once a year if I'm lucky. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off, driving to and from my dad's house and stopping to see my best friend for 10 minutes before we went to the party.

This was also my first time going home since my dog died, and it was so weird. I kept expecting to hear barking every time I pulled in the driveway, and kept waiting for him to burst through the front door and run to meet me at my car. My mom and I talked a lot and it was so good to spend time with her and to see updates she's done to the house we both grew up in. I love my family and I always cherish time I get to spend with them.
