A Smile for the Soul

IMG_4889

This post will be short yet full of deep, intellectual thoughts.

JUST KIDDING! 🙂

We have been living it up over here with my mom and dad.   A Yankee game, a trip to Coney Island, shopping in the city, lunch at a pizza icon, a fabulous date with my husband, the farmer’s market, walks every morning, wine around the dinner table, a late night movie, cookies, the most delicious homemade siu-mai, splashing in the kiddie pool with the cutest two year old, and starting some really fun projects.

The best part?

It was all with my mama and my dad.

For those of you who live near family and have the wonderful privilege of sharing life on a daily basis, don’t let the everyday mundane moments rob you of the beautiful joy it is to be a family in close proximity.

For those of you who are far away from loved ones, I feel you.  But oh what a smile for the soul when you are together!

Ice cream, hot dogs, the ocean, her grandparents... Doesn't get much better than this!

My soul is smiling. 🙂  Until next week,

  1. I live four hours from my family and feels like the other side of the world!! But you’re right-when we’re together, my soul smiles. Enjoy your visit!
