my mission

Picture 1

on Friday I mentioned that I was heading out on a secret mission.  super secret, in fact.  dlb and I packed up our bags and hopped on a plane to Omaha, Nebraska to surprise my mom and grandparents who were visiting my Aunt and cousins.  a month or so ago, my Aunt called me up with the idea to surprise everyone.  we hadn’t all been together as a family in over 8 years.  it felt like Thanksgiving or Christmas or something.  they were so surprised we I walked into the room.

it felt so special to be able to do that and even more special to be with my family.
