Three weeks is just enough time to get settled in and remind me of what I’m missing back home, like balmy Texas evenings and family dinners at Los Cucos on $1.50 margarita night. And pictures where Luke and Apollos are making the exact same face, or where Joy makes the same face I’m making at her when I’m trying to get her to laugh! My dad observed that with four generations at one LONG table, two separate generations had both their parents and children present. Hannie, I borrowed your yellow Anthropologie jacket and Amber recognized it and said she’s going to tell you when you get back, so even though you won’t read this I’m CYA by thanking you for the loan before she tells!!! 🙂 And now Chris and I are leaving at 4 a.m. to fly from Houston to San Francisco to Tokyo, then take our first Shinkansen (bullet train) to Kyoto for delight and adventure.
