Family ties

My Amazing Family

2 days to go! The butterflies are kicking in with a vengeance but writing is becoming very therapeutic.  Yesterday I also received some much needed family therapy in the way that only my amazing family can provide it!  I have been blessed with the most incredible family on the planet and I could not have even dreamed of this giant step in my life without their support, humor and love. We all make an awesome team and we are all so much better together (just like you always wanted, mama!) I've come to crave the company of my mom, brothers and sisters, and my favorite feeling in the world is how much my stomach hurts from laughing so hard after one of our get-togethers. Yesterday was no exception. Thank you ALL for taking my mind off of the surgery, for making me laugh and, to my sweet husband and brothers, for the blessing of comfort and health you offered me.  To Ashlee, my bff, my hero, my baby sister, thank you for the delicious "last supper" and for always being there for me whenever I need you and, of course, for your boobs. I can't wait till I can come steal all your clothes!!!

My beautiful sister and me. I made my mom promise to NEVER print this picture.
Wow, even  now, it's very hard to look at.
