Monochrome Maniacs - Family Bonds



I took this picture on Friday of my niece, my daughter and my sister. Every year between Christmas and the kids return to school my family gets together to exchange gifts and catch up.
We usually go to my cousin's house because that is easy for my sister (who takes mass transit) to get there. It is about an hour and a half for me and the visit is usually quite rushed.

My cousin D has 2 children (11 and 13), my sister has 2 (7 & 10) and my 2 are (3 & 5). It is great to get together because there is a natural ease. Honestly, this is the same ease I have with most of my girlfriends. However, this picture of my sister, my niece and my daughter reminds me of the ties that bind my family.

We only see each other 2-3 times a year but the comfort is still there. Look at my daughter's face. She is 3 and you can tell that she loves these two as if she sees them everyday.
