I realized while I was in Utah that I didn't know a lot of my cousins. I don't think that I ever really did (I'm not blaming the lack of knowledge on living in 2 different states, though I know it didn't help), looking back there always seemed to be some sort of separation between me them even when I lived in Utah. I came home to Arizona really happy to have gotten to know them for the first time. I realize that this whole blurb is kind of corny, but I am very grateful that I was able to spend so much time with so much family (considering it was a short trip). I am sorry there weren't more of us there to share in the fun, you were missed. :)
I also got to have lunch with my friend Lauren while I was there. Can I say that the best thing about Lauren and I's friendship (and the same with Lorraine) is that it doesn't matter how much time has passed, we can pick up where we left off. :) I have truly missed both of these girls the last 9 years, I'm glad I was able to catch up, even if it was really short. I'll be back, I promise!
