Spending time with my sweet auntie and little cousins this weekend past at a local fall festival adjacent to the pumpkin patch was a bona fide treat. It was a first for us all, so it was bushels of fun to race through the towering corn maze, partake in fresh cheesecake caramel apples, and scarf down vanilla bean cupcakes, all before noon. Such simple outings with my dear auntie and cousins were more frequent in previous seasons of life. At thirteen years apart, I more fondly regard my auntie as my older sister, for she was the closest to a sister I had growing up. As for my little cousins, it is surreal to realize I am no longer baby-sitting them in the first decade of their lives, but rather, that they are nearing the culmination of their middle and high school careers. Time passes so speedily, but the sweetness of family time never fades. Cheers to the upcoming holidays - they always ensure tons of family bonding.
