Family House Warming Party
Judy Garland (Dorothy) said it best, “There’s no place like home.” This past Saturday was one of the happiest days of my life, filled with so many people who I love so very much. John & I decided to have a just immediate family house warming family, being both of our families are so large – it just made sense. Some of our families had already met, and some had not – so with the purchase of our new home this was the perfect time to have everyone down. We ended up having the perfect weather, perfect day and our backyard was just filled with so much love – I couldn’t have wished for more.
These are the moment of my life I find myself looking around and just smiling…sometimes during these times, family parities, weddings etc..my heart actually feels like it may burst! Nothing else seems to matter when you are surrounded by people who truly love you and that you love back. Both John & I have been blessed with large families, who are not only supportive but who always make the effort to spend time with us when they can. On Sunday, I randomly just burst into tears and when John looked at me asking what was wrong I replied, “I am just so happy.” I wish everyday could be like Saturday was and filled with family and a house full of people. I live for those days, I work hard for those days and I will always be so thankful for those days. Thank you to everyone who came out to help celebrate our new home – to many, many more happy memories and celebration to come. XO, ats
