a day with my favorite family

This past weekend was Citadel homecoming, and Gabby's (that sweet girl that made me this) beautiful family came to Charleston to see her brother.  We spent the afternoon watching parades, taking pictures, and tailgating before the Bulldog's homecoming game. I love spending time with them, and it was such a breath of fresh air to have them come in town for a visit- over the years I've realized that they are the closest thing to a non-arab second family that I have!

Unfortunately I didn't get any shots of Mrs. Mariaca,
but don't you worry she's just as beautiful (if not, more)
than the rest of them. Oh, and you too Mateo!
