And It Shall Be Known As The Big Chill
We met and connected instantly with the Paul family and the Mattern family back at Wide Sky Days in September. Justin and I invited them to join us in January in the Keys. We weren’t sure it would come together (because how often do such things ever pan out with three busy lives?), but it did.
It may have taken us 3 hours to decide but our time together came to be known as #thebigchill13.
(You can see all the photos on Instagram with that tag).
I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it is to call these families our friends, to see our kids connect, and to have so much fun. So different in so many ways, so very much the same, all with a total love and appreciation for one another. The sheer amount of laughter, depth, fun, and support we shared with these incredible people is beyond my wildest dreams.
(Like seriously? This is my life? Every detail is one I never thought could be mine.)
I’ve sat here staring at this screen, trying to communicate what these two women mean to me, what these two families have given us in such a very short amount of time.
So you’ll get the photos instead.
(Oh, and be sure to catch the video at the end!)
Saying Our Goodbyes
How did it all come to an end?
