There's just something about cousins...

summer 2012

What is it about cousins?
There really is something special, you know.  

I've been pondering it since we were lucky enough to have Sloane's cousins visit.  

Maybe this is it:
Being family, we are automatically close.
Not always together, we don't fight like siblings.
Living far apart, we know to treasure our time together.

I asked Sloane what she thought it was that made cousins were so special. 
Her answer was, "Everything."

Maybe she's right.  Maybe I am.
Maybe it's magic.
Either way, 
There's just something about cousins.

There is a bond no doubting it. I think it's that you share 1/2 of your genes.....I know that could be debated. This picture is beautiful. Hope you frame it and have these good times for many years to come.

Your daughter is blessed to have cousins who she considers to be friends. It doesn't always work out that way. But for those who make the connection, life is easier. Lucky girl.

A picture to cherish for all of them.

cousins are a blessing....a true and beautiful blessing.

my childhood was filled with cousins....and now they all have their own lives and live all over the place, so it's not as it was, but when we all get together, it's bliss !!

And now you have me missing my family...sigh...
