i am seriously so lucky to have been born into this family of mine. they are the best and i am truly so blessed. they are an amazing support system and are the givers of great advice. if i ever need a babysitter, they are there to help. and my kids are always ecstatic to see any one of my sisters or parents walk through the door. they are hilarious and can always make me laugh. if i am ever in tears, i always have a shoulder to cry on. and they usually have me laughing again in no time. and if i am ever having serious jaw pain and decide to take to google to see what could possibly be ailing me and then start crying and immediately email my entire family that google just told me i am about to have a heart attack, they remind me that i am a tired, stressed out mother of two who tends to grind her teeth and clench her jaw while she's sleeping (just like the rest of them do...we are an anxious family) and i am almost certainly not having a heart attack (we are also a family of hypochondriacs). i am just stressed and need to relax and step away from the google machine. and then we all have a good laugh. because that is what we do best. and sure enough, after a nice long workout, some stretching, a hot shower, and a low key day, i am as good as new. no more jaw pain and, thank goodness, no heart attack!
it's also pretty great when i wear an outfit, like the one above, that is almost entirely handed down and/or gifted to me by family members. i'm a lucky gal.
