Reunited at last: the four Cozzens cousins!

Last night, I enjoyed dinner with my sister and my cousins, Meeghan and Heidi, who lived in the Southwest for years, but recently moved home to Massachusetts. Meeghan moved to Colorado in 1999 and later to New Mexico, so I haven’t seen her very much in the past 12 years. I saw Heidi before the Arizona Rock ”˜N’ Roll Marathon in January, but she moved to Arizona about five years ago.

Long story short, I am SO happy that Meeghan and Heidi are finally home. Growing up, we spent all of our time together and had so much fun, so it’s great to have them around again. I’m sure you’ll see a lot more of them on CNC in the future.

You’ll probably see a lot of their dogs too.

Before dinner, we snacked on buffalo wing-flavor Pretzel Crisps, which are insanely addictive. Meeghan and I pretty much finished the entire bag ourselves. I also drank a glass of Malbec over the course of the evening.

For dinner, my sister made Veggie Chili with tomatoes, peppers, corn, celery, chickpeas, and kidney beans in the mix. It was super spicy”” just the way I like it!

We also had corn bread and brownies with dinner.

After dinner, the four of us reminisced about our childhood for hours. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard! We were so ridiculous as kids!

This morning’s breakfast was a whole wheat wrap with peanut butter, banana, and chia seeds inside– and, of course, a glass of iced coffee with soy milk.
