My little sis (in law) moved out to Australia a bit over a year ago. It was great to have her and her boyfriend, Blair, in town for the past week. Unfortunately I was sick for most of their visit.
My wife and I drove Michelle and Blair to Dulles to catch their flight out this evening, and the four of us spent the afternoon in DC. I’m so happy for Michelle, and I can’t wait to see the two of them again.
