My dad, Granny, and two nieces are sitting on an airplane right now taking them from Jackson, Mississippi to Portland, Oregon to come meet their new grandson, great-grandson, and cousin, Mr. Abe. I'm excited. I was up until 2am last night doing chores and woke up way too early, simply excited about them coming. Here is why:
They're good at making their own fun. Here is Granny (can you believe she's 76 years old?! Her pilates class kicked my butt when I went with her to her gym), Layne, and Daddy out at night practicing their best "warrior" yoga pose...
...and Lauren, here in Portland last summer, discovering meaningful ways to spend her hard-earned cash.
"Aw, man, I'd always wanted one of these!"
