That morning we woke up and got ready, and my mother in law and I headed out to pick up some snacks from a local (delicious!) bakery, and go get things set up.
I *kinda* had an idea where the bakery was as we set off with our favorite driver, but a few minutes into my directions, it became apparent that I was way off.
I'm so grateful for each day, and for my health as well as the health of my loved ones.
Standing there, feeling the crazy wind whip across my face, on a beautiful beach, watching my babies celebrate turning SIX YEARS OLD, with my in laws here, and so many new friends there...well, I could have curled up in the fetal position and just wept.
Instead, I offered up a silent Thanks, and did my best to soak in every moment.
