Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today was a long, exhausting, amazing day! My Godfather’s family came up to visit and we all went out to an Applefest almost an hour from my house. It’s a festival with street vendors and food and live music, and it’s a really nice area to walk around. This is something that we used to go to each year when my Godfather’s sons and I were really little, but we haven’t gotten to go in a long time. It was so great to spend time with everyone and get out for the day.
It wasn’t just my Godfather’s immediate family that came up… his brother’s family came, and his sister-in-law’s sister’s family came… there were so many people that came up to visit that we took up a lot of space when we were standing around talking! It was so nice to be able to talk to everyone and enjoy the nice day out, and then my Godfather’s immediate family and my family went out to dinner. We sat around talking and eating for a few hours before exhaustion set in and we all realized that we had to get home. We became really anxious to get going when we realized how late it was and that all of the kids had to go to school in the morning (and adults to work!).
I’m completely wiped out, and can barely even tell if this post makes any sense, so I think I’m going to keep this post short. I hope everyone else had an enjoyable weekend as well!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
