Ma Famille

Boho & B/Sis (Darlene), Canon Digital Rebel XT

Greetings bloggie universe! I have resurfaced.

I am back into the arms of my man and nuzzling into the fur of my kitties.

My trip to Northern California to spend time with my family (ma famille) was full of blessings of all sorts. I typically go out there for a long weekend and always leave feeling as though I didn't quite have enough normalcy with my family. This past week I felt as though I lived there again and had plenty of moments to love every morsel of their beings.

Since I am still recovering from lack of sleep, I am going to keep today's post simple with loads of pictures. I thought this way you could get a true "glimpse" into my weekend and the family members I was lucky enough to see. My kindred niece, Angela couldn't make it home this week due to studying for finals, but I know when she reads this, she will feel as though she was there.

If you click on the pictures, they will enlarge for you.

My niece Kelly (Pamela's daughter) was getting ready for the Senior Prom and how gorgeous she looked:

Kelly and her boyfriend, Dave. Their relationship is the cutest. He plays guitar for her:

My nephews Sean and Casey (Pamela's sons) wrestling in the bathroom:

My sister Pamela chatting with me in the backseat of my marmie's car:

We spent Mother's day in a cute mountain town called "Murphy's" with antique shops and boutiques. Here are my sisters and marmie at lunch:

My nephew Mark (yes, I was an aunt at 10 years old) striking a pose for his Auntie Boho:

My sister Darlene wanted to manicure my toes. She handed me a plethora of nailpolish colors and I couldn't choose between two gorgeous ones. So I chose both. Here is Darlene (b/sis) painting my toes with two colors at my parents house:

Here is the result:

Hi there,
I've been a long time reader but never posted before. It was wonderful to see your family photo's. The love and connection there was so visible in every photo! I have a similar connection to my family and it's just such a wonderful feeling..... I'm on a similar journey to you at the moment and have been thinking of you in your times of need also.
