|In flight to England.|
For those of you unaware, my husband is originally from England and immigrated to the United States... to be with me. I know... I know... *swoon*
This was my first international flight, first stamp in my passport, first time in England, first time meeting everyone...
|My amazing in-laws.|
One thing that really struck me is how absolutely phenomenal Colin's family and friends are. They are all loving, supportive and they immediately passed that love on to me. Not once did I ever feel unwelcome or displaced and to each of them I am so grateful.
Colin hasn't been so lucky with my family - they've been distant, abrasive and often times outright rude to the both of us. They don't understand our choices and make no effort at all to. They alienate us and then wonder why we don't like being around them. In fact, I feel like my ex-husband and his girlfriend have pretty much taken our place in my family's lives. But that's another story.
So, as we go into this Thanksgiving season, I am going to be thinking of my new family and the gratitude I have for them.
I am officially and completely, an Andrews.
