we heart Clare!

So not only is Joe the coolest boyfriend in the world - he also has the coolest family. Joe's little sister Clare spent the weekend with us and I just have to say - I adore her! She' s a super smart, sassy, fun-loving and full of life young woman and I just treasured getting to spend time with her and getting to know her a little better this weekend. Clare and I first met about a year and a half ago when I made a work trip out to DC - at that point Joe ad I had only been dating for about 2 months - she was the first member of Joe's family that I met, and I thought it was pretty cool that she was willing to meet up with me without Joe being present. We ended up chatting over dinner for about 2 hours and well, right then and there, the girl stole my heart.

We spent this weekend going out for spanish tapas, touring Stanford, sipping bubble tea, hanging out at a local park, checking out Joe's new school, catching up on the last Harry Potter movie, brunching with Clare and a few of her college friends and cooking up a mean pot of chili and cornbread for dinner.

Clare - if you're reading this (and I KNOW you are), we can't wait to have you back!

Clare and Joe - love the sweet relationship Joe and his siblings share :).

The weekend trio :).

Joe remaining calm of course in the midst of a couple of crazy girls :).
