My cousin Kim was married to Joe Eagle in Pottstown, PA on May 22nd in my aunt and uncle’s backyard. The ceremony was in a beautiful wooded area next to a zen garden and coi pond that my aunt built. The weather was terrific, albeit a little warm and humid. Having grown up in Michigan but now living in California, the green that was everywhere was a welcome change of scenery. Though I was only there for approximately 24 hours, I’m glad I got the opportunity to visit with family I hadn’t seen in quite a while. Kaija had just started to walk with some assistance and she was happy to show off her new skills to others. She also enjoyed cooling off with a short dip in the pool at the end of the night.
