The theme of today's post is "Natasha the Krahn". Aside from the vaguely Scottish gathering-of-the-clans feel to it, I chose the title to sum up Natasha's deep commitment to her extended family. On both the Krahn and Ewert sides of her family, she is very connected to her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. She has also forged connections with my extended family, as well, over the course of our married life.
I feel like this is a subject better expressed in pictures than in words, but suffice it to say that Natasha's family is a huge part of her life, and she is an amazing daughter, niece, granddaughter, and aunt to many, many people.
