The holidays afforded our family a lot of special moments with people we love. There was Christmas morning at home with my mom. Christmas evening on Long Island with Jordan’s family. A trip to Virginia to see my dad. And time to catch up with some of our dearest/oldest college friends in D.C.
Perhaps the most special day was one when we were able to visit Jameson’s Grandma Helen and Grandmomma Etelle — the mothers of our late spouses, Danielle and Jarronn.
For the last two years, our family has visited the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden, and with our visit this year, I think we can officially call this one of our family traditions.
Last weekend, Jordan and I got out of the city, along with 28 other married couples from our church, for a marriage retreat. It was a welcomed time of relaxing, laughing, reconnecting with each other, and getting to know people from our community in deeper ways.
Jameson has some news to share…
Jameson has a healthy obsession with dinosaurs these days (largely driven by the cartoon Dinosaur Train), and so when it came to picking his costume for Halloween, the choice was an obvious one.
