California...

Here I come! I'm leaving tomorrow morning for the Golden State, and I could not be more excited. I am dying to meet Elodie, so thank goodness that is happening. Last night I had to console a hysterical boy at the group home who couldn't be at his niece's birth and I was thinking - you have no idea how much I can relate. After a lot of "you feel ___ because ___" and other words of understanding, I decided to tell him about my situation. Sometimes a little self-disclosure goes a long way. It ended up being a really good conversation, because he was sort of stuck in the "no one could possibly understand what this is like" mode. Anyway, I can't wait to get down there and meet that baby. I'm also looking forward to warmth and sunshine, so this rain you guys have been having better stop. And I'm very excited about Kayla's wedding, and all the other festivities surrounding it. I can't wait to see everyone! (Except I'm super bummed I won't get to see the Randalls). So I just wanted to write to say that I may not write for a while, but when I do, I will undoubtedly have a lot to share, and I will be sure to take lots of pictures!

We're super-bummed we can't see you, but glad you get to meet Elodie and visit the rest of the fam! I had an inappropriate amount of jealousy (a feeling I do not usually suffer from or permit) when I saw Kevin's girlfriend's adorable pics of my niece on fb today. It seems truly unfair that she got to share that awesome time with our sis and we weren't there! (although, Kelsey, if you're reading this, I'm sure you're a lovely person and I'm happy Bennett is your new boyfriend, good choice, sorry Kevin!)

Miss you like crazy, but hope the future will bring more regular visits again!!! Kiss the baby (and Bennett too) a million times for me, please! Have a great time at the wedding also!
