I’ve never lived very close to my extended family. Even in California, my parents were over 400 miles away. Now that I live in Montana, I have not one, but 2 aunts and uncles close by.
One aunt is on my mom’s side — the other, my dad’s.
One is an aunt by marriage — the other an aunt by blood.
One aunt took me for a hike…
It was so fun to see her again after so many years and to exchange family stories and enjoy God’s creation!
One aunt took me shopping…
It was so fun to get her opinion on a couch and to have her show us which shops to go to!!
Both aunts suggested we stop at Ceres Bakery; (both have good taste!)
Both aunts stay young an active; (is it the Montana air, good genes, or both?)
Both aunts have been welcoming and encouraging and I feel so blessed to call them family!
