My family brings me so much joy in life. I have been blessed with a family that I can honestly say I enjoy spending time with. Between my immediate family, extended family, and my in laws, I can count family members as some of my very best friends. This may already be obvious to you, considering the number of times I have mentioned my family in posts in the few short months that I have been blogging.

One of my favorite things about my husband Riley is how very different he is from me. This is a good thing, most of the time. We learn from each other and push each other to become better versions of ourselves. Every once in a while, we even find something that we enjoy doing together, usually in the form of some kind of project. Life with Riley has reminded me that a little bit of dirt is good for the soul. Life with me, however, has taught him that things aren't always what they seem.

The women in my family have a very special place in my heart. I had a grandmother that lived down the street who occupies some of my fondest childhood memories. And a great grandmother whose love of jewelry is still inspiring me. I have a mother whose creative spirit helped shape who I am today. And a sister, without whom I wouldn't have learned the importance of a guilty conscience or the power of a shared closet.
These people, and these memories, are some of my favorite things.
