A few weeks ago, my family and I spent a long weekend out in Phoenix, AZ to spend some quality time with some family we have out there. It’s funny, because the family we were visiting isn’t actually “family,” we’re not related by blood, there isn’t someone that married us into being family… but the closeness and love we have for each other is nothing short, and possibly even more than, many blood related families. Without getting into too much detail of the trip, to my loved ones in Phoenix – we love you. We’re so happy we could come out and see all of you, and you’re all in our thoughts and prayers every day.
While we were out there, we spent the mornings exploring at Pinnacle Peak and Sedona – and of course I had to snap a couple pics. I’m not sure if the desert life is for me, but it sure is beautiful ☺
To my favorite uncle, you were the best. I will never forget all those times you took care of me when my dad would drop me off on his way to work so I could play with Tiff. I will never forget your energy and jokes. I will never forget when you and my parents found out we had a NYE party at your house. And I will definitely never forget when you and my dad danced at Tiff’s wedding to Gangham Style. A few weeks ago you held my hand and said, “I want family and togetherness to stay in your hearts forever…” I promise you that it will. We love you.
