Afterwards, we went back to my parents house for a lunch time BBQ. I wanted to use the day to have the cousins play, sit on the back porch, and enjoy each others company. I want to always use July 2 as a day where Adam and I set everything else aside and enjoy time with our family and each other. The weather was perfect, and as the kids played, a white butterfly followed them around. Adam and I seperately noticed this butterfly and talked about it later in the day.
Once everyone left, we took a long nap. That evening we headed to the beach. I felt such a weight off of my shoulders. I had done it. I had made it through the first year.
