It's 6:00am and I'm starting to wake up to get ready to come home, After a fabulous week in San Carlos, it's time for me to say my goodbyes and head back to Washington to my wonderful family (who I think might be missing me as much as I'm missing them). I know it's going to be an emotional morning...it always is when I have to say goodbye to the Addario gang.
Danielle's (Bonnie's daughter) surprise 40th birthday party hoedown last night was so fun. Andrea (Bonnie's other daughter) wanted to throw the party of the year, and I think she did it! Their friends, the food and band were all amazing. I'm really glad I stayed for the event....except when I had to say good bye to the kids last night :( It was suppose to be a happy night and I put a little wrench in that when I gave all my kisses and hugs).
Amy is picking me up at the airport this morning and we're all meeting at Angie's this evening for a barbecue. I can't wait to kiss and hug the faces of my clan. Even though I've had a wonderful time here in California, I have missed them all so much. What a better day than Mother's Day to return home. :)
I could not have picked a better time to come down here. My week was so full of stuff to do that I was able to put my new chemo adventure to the back of my brain and not worry about it.
Happy Mother's Day to all you incredible moms. Sit back and let your family spoil you, YOU'RE WORTH IT!
Keep Dreaming Big,
