Family.

Little Somethings has me thinking all about family today.  For years I only defined family by those I had blood ties with.  I cherished the dear family friends I had, but never thought they could be part of my family. Than when I took an anthropology class in college I learned that family means so much more than a blood and DNA relation. 

Now, I personally feel that anyone who cares about me and has played a major apart in my life over the years is a member of my family.  I am honored to feel like I have a large extended family of people who care about me and love me for who I am! 

And now I am also honored to watch one of my closest family members, my sister, begin to start a new family.  Technically, Avi and Ben have been a "family" since they got married nearly six years ago, but now they have Noam and they are beginning the next chapter in their family life. 
This picture just shows me how much love is in this little family.  And I love being able to call these three awesome people my family!
