In my older years…I’ve come to appreciate things so much more. I’ve always appreciated the big things…like having a roof over my head and food on the table…but recently it’s the little things that are always on my mind. Like talking to my mom…I always make it a point to be nice…even when she’s driving me nuts. Or saying yes to brunch with a friend even when I know I am way too busy. Because who knows the next time I’ll get to see them. And most of all…I’ve come to appreciate the value of truly amazing friends. It’s like as life gets more complicated and messy and amazing…having friends by your side that would literally drop anything to help you…is so rare. Friends who genuinely believe in you and want nothing more than to see you fly. Friends who love all the parts of you…good and bad. No matter what. The kind of friends that make this crazy life a blast.
The Belvins are those friends to me. The amount of love I have for this family is insane and Gary and I say all the time that we couldn’t imagine our lives without them. Between trips to Scituate and phone calls where you just can’t seem to hang up…they’ve become a constant in our lives that do nothing but make it better. They are truly some of the greats and while I don’t post family photos on here very often…today is the exception.
Here’s a little peek into a day at the beach with the Belvins. The best kind of day if you ask me…
