My aunt Mercedes is the organizing force behind the Heinrich family reunions. My mom is one of 5 siblings, and her family is spread out across the US, with my sister’s family forming the southern border in Atlanta, my cousin Donie as the northeastern representative in Weymouth, MA, and my cousins Seamus, Anita, and Willow as the western representatives in Seattle, WA.
Many family members traveled from around the country (no kidding – see the map below) to this weekend’s reunion in Logansport, Indiana.
I got to see my cousin the lovely, fun, and talented actor, dancer, and comedian Jessie Green for the first time in (likely) over a decade, maybe even a score of years! I got to appreciate in person my aunt Mercedes’ beautiful new line of etched dichroic glass jewelry, and best of all I got to hang with the kiddos, my cousin Drake, and my niece and nephew.
Thanks, Mercedes, for hosting a wonderful reunion!
