Food & Family

Food and family. It's no coincidence that they're both comforting. I live several states away from my family. My Dewey's family is close, and we are lucky to see them often, except for our Thomas. When he settles somewhere, we will, no doubt, travel to spend time with him also. Recently, we spent two weeks in Chicago eating and visiting with my family. Even the simplest meal pulled together at the last minute by niece Tina was amazing. And sipping hot cider around a back yard firepit watching one child run around with boundless curiosity and the other, still a baby, smile at all of us who had a chance to hold her...that's wonderful memory-making food for the soul!
