The Rausch Family. They are such dear friends of ours. Niall and Alison are 3rd (ish) cousins from way back in the Old Country and we were fortunate enough to hook up with her, her sisters, and her parents and their families when we moved to North Carolina. We spent holidays and birthdays surrounded by their loving family and we're forever grateful for how they really made North Carolina a home for us. The boys became good friends, and Alison a dear friend to me. Always available for a text or chat or crazy lady adventure and someone I really admire as a friend and mother. I was thrilled to be able to take their family photos this year, it was such a special treat for me. We miss you guys already. Let's get planning our next adventure Alison!
