i called my sister (in-law) the day i arrived in california. apparently the two previous nights my nephews had read the two books i wrote for them, one about my first trip to ireland and one about my dreams to move to california. after reading the second one, william turned to my sister and said, "maybe aunt beth will do that someday." my sister smiled and said, "she's doing it right now." "that's cool," he responded.
my family is a keeper. we're all quite different and have literally gone different directions, but there's still genuine connection among us. i love that even though they don't always understand what i'm doing or why i'm doing it, they trust me and believe in me and care. plus, we can always make each other laugh.
a few fun memories...
