grateful...

Do you ever look at photos and feel grateful for them? Usually it is because there is a story behind the reason why the photo you feel grateful for like maybe the people in the photo don't get together very often or there is a great memory behind that photo. I have a few photos to share today that I am grateful. Last week I was visiting my parents and my sister and her boyfriend happen to be in Tucson visiting his parents. As my sister and her boyfriend live in Washington, DC. I looked forward to seeing my sister and watching her interact with her nephew, Caleb. 
The rest of the week in Tucson was wonderful just hanging out with my parents. I might have slipped away for a mid-morning chai, ate more Asian foods than my whiteness would lead people to believe. Ok so I arrived on Monday afternoon, we had sushi for lunch, then Szechuan Chinese for dinner followed by dim sum for lunch the next day. 3 out of the first 4 meals were Asian, yes my family love Asian cuisine. Then I realized how much I dislike living far away from my parents but since it is a grateful heart Monday I will remember to be grateful that while it is only a 6 hour drive versus needing to get on a plane to visit them. That makes the distance seem less far then.
Here are some of the photos I am very grateful for today.




I'm linking up with Ember Grey's A Grateful Heart link-up today.

This is one of the reasons I love my bloggy so much - I love going back and reflecting on old photos/stories. They really are nice reminders to be grateful for what you have.

Having family come together is one of the best feelings. With the way everyone works now-a-days and distance it doesn't happen so much for myself either. It's nice that we have the ability to take pictures so we can capture a moment and relive it as often as we would like.

so sweet. It's not easy being far from family... when we lived in LA and would Skype with my parents every week, I would always cry afterwards! BUT - it makes those visits (and pictures of captured moments) all the more meaningful and cherished, and I never complain about the 3 hour drive to them now that we're back in Chicago :) Thanks for linking up today!!
