Porcelain berries! As found in Pennsylvania by my friend, Jacqueline.
My maternal grandmother, pictured below, died when I was weeks old. I met her once in one of her final days in the hospital. An infant on her belly, cuddling. I look at this photo and wonder overcomes me — this woman is part of me and I always wish I knew her more. The photo below is of my mom, a toddler, and how I wish I knew her as a toddler, how fun would that be?
And it was wonderful to see such joy…in a dog and a boy!
Covid birthday gifts humorously and delightfully involved UGG slippers, an Apple Watch to make sure I’m actually moving, and this chair! As I work from home, I feel grateful to feel these pandemic birthday perfect gifts!
In the world of Covid, how does one celebrate?
For this birthday, we got takeout from the local wine bar and had wine at an impromptu festive table, under the sky.
