Girls Night Out

Last week I got the chance to spend time with my cousin, one on one….just the girls.  She has grown up to be a beautiful, smart, woman (well, she did have me as a mentor LOL).  Had to say that otherwise she will think I mean all these compliments.  We are 17 years apart and we are the only two girls on my mom's side of the family so we have always been close. I am proud to say that I am her Godmother so I have had the great fortune to see her grow up and I have played many roles in her life. 

But now the playing field has leveled out and she is a woman (thankfully I still think of myself being in my late 20's so that bridges the age gap).  I wanted to spend some time alone without the kiddos and it was great……we took in the beach.

With our cooler packed and our red solo cups (thank you Toby Keith!) I took her to the place that means the most to me…..the beach for some "sand between the toes time".  She has a stressful job and this was what we both needed!TWB_3201a
We settled in for a great sunset…….

I am so proud of her.  She is an amazing woman and I value the bond we have.  I am also thankful she got my sense of humor (thank you to our family for that!) to add to her great beauty…….
