We just landed in Portland after a quick but lovely trip down to see Karen’s family in San Jose.
The whole in-law situation can be tricky sometimes. When you get together with someone you never really know what you’re going to get in regards to your love’s people. You can’t be sure if they are going to like you, or if you are going to like them. Like I said… Tricky.
So it was with a bit of nervousness nearly eight years ago the first time we flew down to San Jose to meet them. There have been many trips since and I can say, without any doubt, that I love them more each time I get to see them. The wonderful thing about in-laws is that if you do like them, and they like you back, it totally adds another whole layer and depth of feeling to your life. It’s wonderful, as they are.
I can’t begin to express how much I love and cherish them. Thanks for always welcoming me so warmly, for loving me so well, and for treating me like one of the family. I love thaty family has grown so much and so well just by joining yours.
I love you guys and am already looking forward to the next time we get to see you.
