Because I am so close with my family, and because we are fortunate enough to see each other a lot, an important part of me visiting Italy was getting to know E's family. Even though he doesn't get to see them every day, he is just as close with his family as I am with mine and it was exciting to finally get to meet them. And there was just something so special about seeing E with his family; he was truly just so happy, he was glowing.

|I managed to catch a smile though :)|
E has 3 nephews and 1 niece in Italy, and because he only gets to see them around once a year, they are beyond excited when they get to be with him. These kids love their uncle and he is just so good with them that you can see why they do.
