What are you up to this weekend? Alex has been traveling non-stop for work, so I’m happy to have him back in my clutches. (And also to not be spooked at night!)

Two sweet old ladies lived next door to me, and every evening they would be out on the porch, drinking a glass of white wine with ice cubes and noshing on Cheez-Its. Coming home every day to such a happy scene helped to keep me grounded during those three intense years.”
