Grandma came to visit, which, though it leaves a gaping when she leaves, has its perks, not the least of which are pictures. While my girls continue to talk as if Grandma hung the moon, invented unicorns and conceived Yo Gabba Gabba, we have a rich bounty of photos.

An excerpt from a front stoop photo shoot. I am delighted soul-deep by how it perfectly captures the essence of my life.

Love you, mom. Thank you.
