Last night was the celebration of my Grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary! Woot Woot! Congratulations to my awesome Shugarman Grandparents!
Before leaving for the party, there was a bit of a hotel-suite dance party while my brother, sister and I got ready.
It has been such a great [but short!] weekend with my siblings!
The party was filled with good Polish food. It was such a delightful way to celebrate our family and heritage together: lots of deliciousness!!
The banquet hall was also filled with great conversation. I met some family members who I haven’t ever met before. Others I hadn’t seen since I was a toddler. I was also able to see some cousins who I grew up quite close with, but haven’t seen for YEARS. It was wonderful to catch up and get our party on. The drinks were flowing right along with the conversations 🙂
And the dancing? It was awesome!
This morning I’m headed back to Albany.
The trip to Chicago was WONDERFUL – full of great food, fantastic quality time with my family, and tons of fun. I always get extremely sad/sappy when leaving my parents and siblings [I started crying at one point last night while watching my parents dance to “Open Arms.” Yes, I’m serious.]
Even though I’m heartbroken to leave the fam, I am happy to have two stellar gentlemen to come back to New York to see: Nicholas and Benson. Hooray for the silver lining 🙂
