So, I am sitting here, roasting like a turkey on Thanksgiving day, because our air conditioner is broken (although hopefully, by the time you read this, it will be fixed). But I catch myself thinking, “It’s not all that bad. I get to spend my time with this wonderful family.”
The Vecseys are, undeniably, the most loving folks ever. They love, eat some ice cream, and then love some more. You can’t get away from it (as if you’d want to) and you can’t ever beat them at the loving game. I am pretty confident that when you become friends with them, you just have to admit defeat and surrender. Jamie will always be better at giving awesome gifts. Jay can’t be beat at making you feel comfortable and well entertained when you are over for dinner. And the kids? Oh man. They are like walking, human lollipops, they are so sweet. They greet you with a hug and have you playing in the back yard before you can even grab your first drink.
I think a part of it comes from this lady. Oh lovely Nana. She is the queen of entertaining and also, ridiculously generous. She remembers my birthday and to send me love in the mail better than my own relatives. She is happy to help someone out and I am thankful that God brought a wonderful, equally generous, and kind man into her life. He is like her rock and I have never seen her happier than when she is around him.
Which is a wonderful thing to be said because when I am around all of them, it is crazy. Not the bad kind of crazy. The kind of crazy that makes you want to step back, smile, and watch all the fabulous joy happening around you. And running. There always seems to be lots of kids running and playing. It is never dull. It is never the same twice. It is never short of good food, entertaining conversation, and a enough love that you feel like you heart might explode as you drive home, full of ice cream, brownies, and in the case of this session, 100 pounds of yummy salmon.
Thanks for letting me be a part of your family year after year Super Vecseys! You all keep getting more and more beautiful, exponentially happier, and wickedly entertaining and I can’t wait to stick around for the future!
