Our first big event in California was a sad one. My Auntie Laura very unexpectedly passed away in April. Since her funeral was in Colorado where she lived, my parents had a
memorial for her at their house for family and friends. My Aunt was AWESOME. She always had crazy stories for my sister and I when we were little, and she loved to torture us by cracking our toes and giving us indian burns, but we always came back for more. She left behind my beautiful little cousin Megan, who is the spitting image and personality of her mom. It was great to see all the family and meet some of my Aunt's old friends. You will be missed
