Family Ties: Part 2

A few months ago, I wrote about how my husband, daughter, and I had moved into live with my in-laws. We did this for multiple reasons, of which you can read about here.

It’s cozy and we are trying to make it our own for the time we are there, but it is also just what we need for the moment.
