The day after Easter, how is this almost a month ago, I did something amazing. I boarded a plane alone and flew to New Jersey for a week.
Josh was home from work, my in-laws were on hand to help out and I was going to be a sister and an aunt. Baby Matilda was 4 weeks old and I was about to meet her.
Leaving snowy, muddy and chilly Alaska for spring time in NJ was heavenly.
As was uninterrupted time with my dear sister and her daughter. Oh, a time when I could be the help they both needed without being a mother or wife at the same time. It was an amazing gift to all of us!
