Growing up I pretty much idolized my mom’s younger sister, she was only a handful of years older than myself but decades ahead in “cool.” I specifically recall her attentive kindness towards me during a particularly rough age when it felt like the mean girls may very well bury me alive out on the school playground. I think about those days often, so many years later, as I watch her children and now my children grow and learn to navigate the world. And I see the roads and cycles of life converging as I am able to love her kids well and in turn they are loved and admired by my kids. And the beautiful redemptive circle keeps spinning. . .
The Snarey family are some of our favorite people ever – the kind of people we vacation with, hang out in our pj’s and unbrushed teeth with, or laugh with until our drinks come out of our noses – okay, so that was just me, but the point being this is a stellar family. And bonus, they are our family and our dear friends. We had a great time grabbing some family photographs of them when we were all together earlier this fall.
Enjoy – thanks for stopping by!
