I feel like this post is way overdo!!
So when my sister did the bake sale fundraiser at her store she advertised it as for "the other sister" because two of my sisters work together leaving me as the other sister. But all my life my cousin Mariana has been my other sister. She is an only child whose mom is my mom's sister. We were born less than 2 months apart and I have always thought of her as more of a sister than a cousin. She was the maid of honor at my wedding and I at hers. I honestly feel we are sister. So this amazing woman, Mariana, and her husband, Silvano, own a restaurant on the Central Coast where they offered to hold a benefit dinner for my family. It was one of those nights I felt truly blessed to have the family I have. It was amazing to see all of these people who came out to support my family and most of them were friends (or friends of friends) of my cousins. We were moved by the support in that community!
A word of warning this is where it turns into a photo journal! :)
My cousin Miguel's friend John offered to take pictures of the event, thank you John for the great pictures! Side note I mainly chose pics of my family because I'm not worried about plastering their faces on the web!
A great big thank you to all of you who came out and showed us so much love. We felt very loved that night. And the biggest thank you to Mariana and Silvano for making it happen.
