For Now

I know I haven’t written here in a while. There are a lot of reasons for that. Mostly I’m just overwhelmed, and nurturing this place has fallen to the bottom of my list of obligations.

Going Home

We head back this morning, one of the last times I'll go home to Chicago. This has really been the nicest vacation, mostly because it was really just that — an honest vacation.

Greg is a fantastic father in so many ways, but the parenting skill of his that I am most in awe of is his innate desire to teach Veronica things. I credit her large vocabularly and her ability to instantly pick up new words entirely to him. I feel so lucky to be co-parents with Read more…
