I have been missing my family lately. Especially my cousin, Stephanie. She and I are favorite cousins. She was my maid-of-honor and I was her matron-of-honor. I went and helped her when her 2nd child, Josh, was born and I had a blast with her and her little family.
She and her husband, Leonard, live in the country and you have to open a gate and drive down a dirt road to their house. And the town they live in is small but has so much character. There is always something for us to do when I go and so many great places to shop and eat like there is a little cafe that all of the locals go too and the food is awesome and everyone knows everyone when they walk in. It is the epitome of a small town in Texas.
Stephanie and I talk almost every day and I love the fact that outside of my sisters, I am so close to someone that I grew up with. I feel so lucky to have her in my life.
