another family!

the boy and i went straight from the eyre reunion at bear lake to his family’s reunion in island park, idaho. the timing of having our family reunions back-to-back without overlap was actually totally amazing, considering they were both planned when we were not together. it was really really fun to spend time with both families – because they are so different and both so so great.

the boy’s family rented a big log cabin in the middle of the woods, and it was the perfect spot! the surroundings were gorgeous - i was specifically obsessed with all the colorful wildflowers growing and glowing in between the trees and in vast meadows around the cabin. i hadn’t met the boy’s sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews, or his closest-in-age brother and it was pretty great to get to know them. the time we spent all together was both really fun and super relaxing – full of beautiful walks, games and activities on the deck and behind the house, swinging in the hammock, playing cards in the basement, a craft with the sisters and lots of good conversations.

it’s a peculiar, amazing thing to join a family – something i’ve obviously never experienced before. i felt so very kindly welcomed by the boy’s family and left the reunion feeling super grateful to get these in-laws. i have so much to learn from them and look forward to many more reunions to come. having two families is pretty neat.

  3. I just got married 9 months ago and I have to say that my new family has been such a blessing to me! I have the most wonderful family so I never thought that I needed another but wowzers they have been such a blessing in my life. I would have had a total meltdown if it weren't for my mother-in-law guiding me through wedding planning!
