Creating Memories, Traditions, and GIRL POWER! Priceless . . .

In an earlier blog entry, I shared my thoughts about visiting my extended Vietnamese family in the humid Mekong Delta with my husband, sisters-in-law, and Southwest Coworkers. A month later, I had another amazing family reunion; however, this time, it was in chilly Chicago with an exclusive group: The Delevett Granddaughters. I was included because I married into the family and was allowed to hang with the SISTAHS.delevettwomenblog.JPG Ranging from ages five to 39, four generations of Delevett women flew from all parts of the country to celebrate Grandma Jeanne's 89th birthday. Some of us hadn't seen each other in almost five years, and we had a lot of catching up to do. We laughed, cried, cooked, and danced – all in our pajamas! Being a Californian, one of my favorite parts of the trip was trying to make angels with the season's first snow. snowangelsblog.JPGWe had such a FUN time together, and we're already planning next year's Granddaughters-Only Weekend. Speaking of traditions, every milestone birthday I get together with a small group of childhood girlfriends to celebrate life. (Sorry, I'm not disclosing my age.) We recently met in New Orleans, where we let the bons temps rouler and had another unforgettable trip. Words can not express how much I appreciate that these dear friends take time out of their busy, busy lives to meet every five years. new-orleans-birthdayblog1.JPG I hope that Southwest helps you and your loved ones create memories and traditions this holiday. Please tell us one of your favorite Southwest trips or one of the traditions you share with your family or friends. Happy Holidays!
