Last Saturday, the hubby had to work until 11:00 at night, and my mom had a party in New Jersey to attend. This meant that I could either spend the time at my house alone or go hang out with family. I chose the family route. I went over to my grandmom and uncle Joe's house. Grandmom was away on retreat, and uncle Joe was watching my cousins. I don't get too much one on one time with uncle Joe, so today, I am thankful that I was able to spend last Saturday night laughing harder than I have in a long time with him and my cousins.
Mom and uncle Joe a few Christmases ago
Uncle Joe talked about everything from starting his business to buying his condo in Ocean Isle Beach (where the hubby and I honeymooned) to funny stories about my mom and aunt when they were little. He taught my cousins' and I card tricks, number games....it was really such a special time. I'm glad that I had the opportunity to spend more time with him.

My other cousin Christopher. I realized that we need more pictures of just the two of us - this one is 4 years old!!
There's something special about spending time with family, and I'm glad I got the chance to do it.
I'll be away for the next couple of days-my best friend is getting married. I can't wait to do a recap!
Question of the Day:
What are you thankful for today?
Until next time!
