The last time all four of my sisters and I were in the same place at the same time was fifteen years ago. FIFTEEN years!!! Obviously this was a big occasion. So big that I had it commemorated with these cool keychains because who knows how long it will be till it happens again? This was also the first time my dad and stepmom met Declan, and my first time meeting all of my sisters' boyfriends, so a pretty momentous occasion all around.
The wedding was not a good time for in depth socializing for me, because they had Joe and I on a pretty strict schedule, so we made sure to cram in as many family get togethers as possible before and after the wedding. There was the rehearsal dinner, followed by a sleepover, an after wedding brunch, a Robinson family barbecue, and a sisters (+ Timm & Eric) wine tasting trip to Sonoma.
All that family time was good for my soul and I'm so happy Ez and Declan got a chance to spend some quality time with their long distance aunties and grandparents. Lifelong memories were made, many (many, many) photos were taken, lots of wine and champagne was drank, and it all went by much too fast, as good times tend to do. I'm so happy to see that all my sisters are in a good place in all areas of their lives. We've seen each other through highs and lows but I think this is the first time we've all been in a good place at the same time. Maybe that's a sign we're getting old?
I'm already counting down the days till our next reunion. Perhaps for another wedding?? ;)
