17, 16 & 15: Family, Friends & Wrigley
On Thursday my mom, Leila, Wrigley and I took a road trip out to the farm where we met up with my dad and sister. While I took a nice long shower, my family fussed over Leila. It was wonderful. I love my family. When I moved back home after college I realized this in a way I never had before, especially since pre middle school years. I genuinely enjoyed being under the same roof. Now that Leila is here, I appreciate them on a whole new level. As much as I long to move abroad again and loathe the Houston summers, I like that we’re all in the same city and appreciate the every once and awhile we still get to stay under the same roof.

I never cease to wonder how such an amazing group of people entered my life. There’s something special about college and that brief moment where you live with and are constantly hanging out with your friends, but I much more appreciate the emails and phone calls and dinners now.
Oh Wrigley. How could you not be grateful to have that face in your life?
