Many people don’t know that I am the oldest of 7 siblings in a blended family! Each year, we all make our way to San Diego to be together for Thanksgiving.
When we were kids and our parents first met, my Mom and Step Dad arranged for a giant family photo at JC Penny. We all wore jeans, white turtle necks, and a Santa Hat.
This year, us kids decided to surprise our parents and re-create the photo with everyone being married having children of our own. The photographer was a SAINT being able to capture even the smiles of my infant niece and nephew in this photo!
Getting together like this on the beach is something I will never forget! As busy as life gets, let this be a reminder that life is short and to always make time for family NO MATTER WHAT!
