As long as it's been since I posted on my "public" blog, it has been a lifetime since I've posted on this personal blog in comparison. But I do have a major personal milestone to document. After months of planning, we finally came together this past labor day weekend for our first ever family reunion (maternal grandfather's tree). While our family is small, and many loved ones have passed on, it was powerful to reaffirm our family bond, and renew our commitment to staying connected and learning more about our family history. I know I needed this weekend. I think we all did. Because as Jamaica's motto states: out of many, we are one people. One Love family.
