Well, the Watkins family had quite the weekend on the Isle of Palms. We added seven members to the clan, not including significant others or crumb snatchers, and all fifteen adults and four children piled into this here beach house for food and sun and sand. And it was good. The happy couple is, well, happy. The kids are cool. The holidays are about to get a little crazier. But hey, there’s always room at the table for a few more.
Of course, big life transitions aren’t always smooth, and neither was the entire weekend (side eye towards the black tie memo some folks missed). But it was a gathering of people who care deeply about their family members, all coming together for the first time in support of parents who work hard and deserve happiness. Second chance families are an interesting bunch, but I’m thinking this one will stick.
Congratulations, love birds!
