What Got Me Through

I saw this picture and it made me smile from ear to ear - something that has been hard to come by lately.

So the past 2 weeks have been rough ones - the ones where all I want to do is run home and snuggle with my mom and dad and tell them everything. Although I don't have my parents close, my sister Jamie and her husband Jon live about 5 hours away in CT. They were so gracious to come to D.C. last weekend to get my mind off of some things. I love what my remarkable family can to do lift and strengthen me.

While they were here we talked about life - we did other things but the details don't matter. What matters is that they were here for me when I needed them the most.

Thanks for coming Jamie and Jon. You two are wonderful.

We are nerds together. I love Jamie's face, Jon's prominent chin, and the fact that I look like I drooled onto my shirt. Best picture ever.


  1. how sweet :) that picture of you two has got to be the cutest thing in the world! love those little navy shoes (and jamie's have rad print). i hope that visit cheered you. you're the best! i love you!

  2. Chin up, Marie. Isn't family the best? ..and oh how I remember you and Jamie at that age. You two were the sweetest and kindness sisters to each other. We love you! Paul and Susan

  3. I'm sad that I missed Jamie and Jon's visit, but I JUST stood in the same spot where you took your Golden Gate pic!

  4. hang in there beautiful Marie! You can do hard things! No one can understand like a sister can- so glad you have her close by. I am sending love and hugs your way!
