New ventures can be scary; so exciting, but also scary. It’s nice to have the comfort of the ones you love, helping ease the weight of these moments. Meeting this family on the shores of Siesta Key cemented that reality. Here was mother and father supporting their son as he traveled to a new state as an actor in traveling theatre, and here was his wife (and 4 month-old daughter), brother and sister all lending their support as well. A truly united bond that was so beautiful to see. As we watched the birds fill the sky and awaited one of those famous Siesta sunsets, I found myself watching their interactions, their candid expressions of happiness and love. I think the fact that mother and daughter-in-law wore matching shirts says it all; the closeness is as genuine as they come.
