Life, Love, & Loss

While we were home in Georgia on leave we had to take an unplanned tripped to St. Simons to be with the hub's family as his grandmother passed away unexpectedly the day after we arrived. We both felt very blessed to be able to be with family during this time and despite the somberness of the situation were glad to see some family members that we hadn't seen in a long while. It was touching to listen to the story of Mary and Hollis who were high school sweethearts, just like Mitchell and I. It's a true testament of their love for one another to look at the family they created and I feel honored to now be a part of that incredible family. At the reception afterwards we got to listen to the Etheridge clan sit around and tell stories of Mary and Hollis from when they were younger and raising kids of their own which was such a treat as we are about to head out on the same adventure ourselves in a few months time.
