fifty years later...

Just this week, my grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with their six children and twelve grandchildren. We gathered in a colossal house located on the outer banks of North Carolina. It turned out to be the perfect escape spot, with the mighty white waves billowing, the wild mustangs roaming the dunes. I really cannot express the time I had in words, so I will let the photos do it for me.

We spent the mornings as early birds and late sleepers, the afternoons as pool swimmers and beach walkers, the evenings as night owls and tired outers. But whatever we did, we did it together. Being with family has made me realize how blessed I am to be surrounded by an incredible group of people who I can trust and rely on. From seeing aunts and uncles I haven't seen in years, to meeting my young cousins for the first time, abiding with family feels so utterly right. Missing them terribly, I am already looking forward when we can all be together again.
