My Grandparents have been married for fifty years, and that's a giant deal. So, all of their decedents and their spouses (seventeen total) took the week off of work and traveled to spend time together in the beautiful mountains of Asheville. There's an animal park here with snuggling otters and handsome red wolves. We're eating elaborate home-made meals, catching fire flies, and photo bombing each other as often as we can get away with it. Mostly, though we're playing games around large tables and taking lots of deep breaths outside. Family is that group of wonderful, obnoxious, beautiful humans that you love more than the rest of the humans on earth, and I'm thankful for mine.
