A nice positive

when your mom passes is that you get nicely fed.  Like a great meal at the local raw vegan cafe:

Or an awesome cafe brunch in town:

Or someone makes you a vegan blueberry cream cake:

Or your awesome company sends you an edible arrangement:

That even a little nephew or niece can enjoy:

Or a friend sends you home with a huge trough of leftovers:

Or brings fancy take-out:

This was pretty awesome and delicious. If food = love, I am very well loved. On a separate note, I have gained approximately 15 pounds.

It's been a LONG time

Holy cow.  It's been forever since I posted but for what it's worth the last months have been a blur and a lot of things feel like they were just yesterday.

Unfortunately, my mom hasn't been feeling the greatest and that's really been consuming my time, energy, and attention.  I've spent weeks at a time in NJ (yeesh, I can't remember when I last spent an entire week at home all summer) with a little respites of fun with visits from these cuties:

Also I was thrilled to witness these beautiful weddings:

Kristen and David

Abby and Lars
Definitely a lovely balance.
