Family Weekend (Day 1)

May 13-15: FAMILY Reunion in Yuma, Arizona!!!!!

I had tons of fun:) I'm guessing close to 100 family members were able to make it. It wasn't a really reunion but for all of us to get together to celebrate Uncle Jerry Sr. and Aunt Loretta's wedding anniversary (45 years!). Uncle Jerry Sr is my Papaw's older brother. Aunt Loretta, his wife, is battling cancer.. the MAIN reason for a quickly planned family weekend.

We left Ontario, CA at 10:30am and arrived in Yuma about 2:30pm. Not too bad of a drive when you are listening to Louis Lamour (or Sacket) stories. :)


Some of us (about 10 Rowells in my family and about 10 more cousins/aunts/uncles) who were in town went out to eat at this Mexican Restaurant-LOL when we pulled up, my Uncle Jeffrey played a prank. He took Uncle Billy's (Papaw's brother) guns from his UNLOCKED jeep and put them in Mamaw and Papaw's trunk of their car.

We went inside and ate yummy Mexican food :) We spilt 5 drinks on our table /: CLUMSY.. Then we headed back out and Uncle Billy went to his car and he noticed he didn't see his guns. Uh-oh. He was looking at Uncle Jeffrey and my cousin Jerry Jr. (I call him Uncle Jerry) to see if they had a smirk on their faces to prove them guilty :) lol he knows them too well. After a few minutes, Uncle Billy said, "I'm going to call the cops" and even then my Uncles didn't confess!!! He was well into the conversation with the police when my Uncle Jeffrey starts to bust up laughing! "THIS TEACHES YOU A LESSON!" We had a good time :) and we were out of that parking lot within 30 seconds ;) didn't want to get in trouble with the cops lol.

We headed to the church to help with some finishing touches for the morning family gathering :) LATE NIGHT

(Day 2 tomorrow)

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

This place has become h…
