Home Again and a New Family Member

Photo by Patrick Hoban

We're home after a whirlwind trip to Ohio, in which I gained a new sister, who was in fact already a sorority sister and my best friend from college.  Long, long ago, I asked my senior year college roommate to be my maid of honor.  Also at the wedding was my older brother.

Being the clueless type, it never dawned on me that in the ensuing almost thirteen years, that there might be any particular reason why my friend would ask me how my brother was doing.  Nor did I particularly find it weird when my brother asked for my friend's phone number so that he could call her up whilst at a conference in her city.

I only seemed to get a clue when my friend called me a week or so after that and mentioned that she and my brother had been talking a lot since then.  After that, the rest is history.  Less than a year later, they are married and I couldn't ask for a nicer sister-in-law.

And don't you think the above picture is an awesome family photo?  I know you may not all know my children as well as I do, but I think their personalities show clearly through this shot.

I love that family photo! The rather less posed ones do let the personalities shine through.

More when I get back, but having spent the last several days with friends with four under the age of six, the already high level of respect I have for you just went up many, many notches!

Janis, thank you. That is one of my favorite parts. Not that I'm vain or anything.
