…and that this was the second one:
Because man alive we like to find good food :).
And then we like to talk about every aspect of that food.
We’re weird like that.
We love to take in the ambiance of places as well. We loved this cool courtyard.
And then after I dragged her to a whole slew of antique stores in the city (which she “gets” as well), we had to stop for our favorite salted chocolate chip cookies at our favorite bakery.
(It’s a tradition when any of my sisters are in town…love this bakery.)
Saren tagged along on a few carpools and watched Grace cheer.
She sat with me and watched Claire beam that we would be watching her at gymnastics, as understood as I teared up because I can’t believe my daughter can do stuff like that.
This was a meager attempt to capture her with my towering teenagers at the airport.
But my favorite thing was our hike.
I didn’t pull out my real camera (dang it), and there are much better pics. of that hike back HERE taken by Elle a few months back.
But as we hiked higher and higher, our conversation got deeper and deeper.
We not only took in the beauty but we got to reconnect like we hadn’t in a loooonnng time.
We lost the path a little bit and had to climb straight up a few places.
But oh boy, was that perspective ever beautiful!
Sometimes, from a little higher perspective from higher ground, life somehow becomes much more clear.
And even more-so when you have a “higher perspective” from your older, wise sister.
So grateful for her.
Love you Sar!
Now to spend more one-on-one with my other seven siblings next week. Can’t wait.
