Until you make one for yourself, you don't get it.
You can't get it.
Suddenly, it is just you and your people, cocoon-like.
Extended family and friends are a wonderful complement to the dynamic you have going but mostly, the ultimate moments are when it's just about your little tribe.
No-one can touch the importance of what you have made.
You love the others in your life no less but like falling in love, there is an intensity to family that forms a barrier between you and the world. And sometimes, attempts to penetrate that barrier are unwelcome. Because you're so entirely submerged in your little reality.
Adventures outside are exciting. Important.
But there is nothing quite like tucking yourselves away again, folding yourselves back into one another and just being this amazing thing you have created.
Nothing quite like family.
Beautifully written. I often feel like this, it’s like you have a se
cret nobody else gets!
so very true, beautifully written.
Yes! It’s so like that.
I think most people understand that it’s not personal – but once you and your beloved make little people? Every other relationship pales into insignificance….which sounds kind of insulting but it really, really isn’t.
So hard to explain….
There’s something awesome about starting your own club, isn’t there?
And then there are people who insert themselves into the equation whether you like it or not…… 😉
I think ‘tribe’ is the perfect word for our little families we’ve made.
And speaking of perfect, how much so is this photo? Love it.
Love that photo!
There really is nothing better, is there. *insert contented sigh*
Yep, unfortunately that’s very true too.
This is the sort photo I refer to as “accidently nailed it” – it’s awesome, isn’t it? I think it might belong in a frame…
Thank you! I love it, too.
