Feast...

I drove all night and arrived safely Thanksgiving morning. The stretch right before dawn, when the black sky was just beginning to turn a charcoal grey tinged with dusty pinks and washed out ochre was the hardest. But I made it and shortly after indulged in a lovely meal with my family.

One of the highlights of this trip was meeting my new nephew, Max. He's such a cute baby. I look at his face and see a world of possibility written in his curious, big brown eyes.

Another highlight of the trip has been spending time with Azalea. We've been having fun. We made paper-bag puppets. The puppet she's holding up in the picture is of me - hairy Adam's apple and all.


It's true that we had a feast of delicious Thanksgiving dinner-items, but I also glutted myself on a feast of little happy moments.

Above is a picture of Max and Azalea sleeping together on the couch.

Glad to hear you made it safely! What a precious picture of Max and Azalea asleep on the couch. I know that Max is going to love Uncle Andrew as much as Azalea does. Have a safe trip home.
