Kurt had to come back to LA early so Harper and Gamma and I had a lovely time, just us girls. One of the main reasons I was there was to attend the 50th anniversary of Seabury Hall. There was... Continue reading

Dear Auntie Martha died a few weeks ago. She was my grandmother's sister and the last of her siblings (and siblings-in-law). She had a wonderful life and I'm so happy I got to be a small part of it, especially... Continue reading

Here's an awesome (read: "goofy") picture from the flight over. We both have similar expressions and it just makes me laugh! (I should add a big "DERP!" to it...) At the airport, Harper helped Kurt with the luggage. After the... Continue reading
