I was happy before the tears.

The original plan for Saturday was to go to Sean’s rugby game in White Plains but in an effort to keep me from sitting in the cold for too long, we decided against it. Of course, I took pictures of my nephew. You'll see that I'm a tad bit obsessed.

The day ended up being in the 60s! So it obviously was the perfect day for our photo shoot (I'll most likely share that tomorrow), drinks in the afternoon at Torches and a scenic walk around the water.

Priscilla and I always have the greatest time together and when it was time for us to say our see you laters, I cried. It’s what I do whenever I leave my family. I need to grow up because no one wants to have to explain why they are a big ole cry baby to their future kiddos. I mean, even my 3 year old nephew asked me, Auntie, you OK?

Yeah, just slightly mortifying.

Your little nephew is just the cutest boy Faith. I'm so glad that you had such a great time with him and your sister, the food looks amazing and it looks like so much fun. I think it was a good call to give the rugby game a miss just until you're definitely better, the weather has improved though!

The Pink Growl said...

These pictures are awesome Faith! So glad you got to spend time with your fam!

Kathy C. said...

Look at you and your blog post full of awesome pro pics! Can you believe you used to be like... "I don't think I'll post the pics I take". They are amazing! You nephew is so adorable!! You can tell her loves you to pieces! Food pics in the a.m. make it really hard for me to go to the gym during lunch lol. Great pic of you at the end too! Glad you had such a memorable weekend...I would cry too. It's hard leaving family behind. :/

WOW! You are turning into quite the photographer Momma. LOVE the foodie pics and the nephew is adorable. So photogenic!

Eesh said...

Seems we are somewhat alike. When I leave family that's in the islands, I cry but mama those are right down the road so luckily for me I get to see them whenever I want.

Love the candidness of the photos of your nephew. He's a stunner!

Nancy said...

I tear up reading this because I miss my sister & I living closely! I feel your pain!!

lori said...

Highly Favored said...

Nice post. Food looks Yummy! I noticed you hair has grown a lot. It look great.

ruthy ann said...

I know these tears...my family is seperated by so much distance so it happens at all of our goodbyes!

The Mrs./The Mom said...

Love the pics (as usual). The food looks heavenly (and now I'm hungry)! I know what you mean about leaving your family. I am so used to being around the corner right from them that when I know it'll be at least 2 weeks before I hang out with them makes me sad. Tears are sometime but I know the feeling.

Sarah said...

Your posts make me hungry! And I still cry sometimes when I say goodbye to my family. In a way, it got worse with the baby with the sleep deprivation :)

Cece said...

Love your pics. Was that a casadilla I spotted in there?? I froze my butt off last night at hubby's flag football game last night...I was hoping to get a pass but I toughed it out. It's not White Planes NY, but for me it was cold! Glad you enjoyed some quality time with your sister and nephew.

i think that is a good call hanging out with your sister and nephew a bit more rather than sean's rugby game. he is adorable and it isn't hard to see why you would want to hang out with him more and take lots of photos him and that truck look like best buds

Carolyn said...

Those pics are so cute! The last one is definitely my favorite! :) Adorable! I totally cry when I leave my family sometimes too. And I live 10 minutes from my dad. :)

Marion Green said...

1) He pretty much is the cutest nephew in the world :)
2) And now I am hungry thanks to those photos! Your lunch looked amazing...

Sarah said...

He is the cutest..and don't worry about crying :) By the way, you need to do a camera tutorial!

Adrienne said...

Gosh he is so precious!!!!! :)

I would cry too... We tend to get teary eye when we leave my in laws from a mini vacay up north.

They live about 7 hours away.
So although we talk to them all the time, we don't see them.

Sniff, sniff.

I'm so glad you were able to have alone time with her!! :) So nice to have your "see you soon", just the two of you.

jessica renee said...

Faith I also can't get over how quickly you became a pro at taking pictures. I'm still sitting here shooting on auto -- 3 years later. So jealous!
