I grew up in Ohio. My roots are there, with midwest values and big family ways. I left that far behind in 1984 when I found the Golden State with my sweetheart. I have a good life, I live in Heaven actually.
EXCEPT I miss my parents and sibling terribly. No one else moved out here. I am a Left Coast to the bone now....but I miss them all.
It is my parents 60th wedding anniversary today. And a few months back my sweet little sister planned that we all get together in June. It has been 11 years since we were all in one place at my same sister's wedding. She is a gem a real angel. She planned and planned and tonight at my parents anniversary dinner was the big REVEAL. I wish I could have been there to see my parents surprise reaction!!
I talk to my mom almost everyday, many times she said she wished we could all get together soon, I could not tell her the secret.
Now I cant wait to see everyone in June in Ohio my sister planned the reunion in http://www.nps.gov/cuva/index.htm
