This past weekend I did the first of many road trips to London, alone, with the kids. It was amazing folks. Journey, the usual carseat screamer, slept almost all the way there as well as almost all the way home. Honour was his usual chatty self, but then settled quietly with his leap pad allowing me some silent highway driving. Silent highway driving. I don’t think this has happened in years 🙂
I miss my sister a lot and her trips down do not happen enough so before second guessing myself I agreed to trek up the two hours and spend some time with her. I am so thankful I did and it is in these moments I appreciate my optimistic attitude as those hours in the car could have been disastrous.
Family is precious. And that does not need to be your blood relatives. Whoever your family is make time for them, make an effort to connect with them and don’t let those moments race past due to fear of any kind.
Pictures of time well spent!
