    Default Back from Glorious Maine!




    Sad and happy....

    Here are a few photos of home - my beach in southern Maine - and a couple shots of my kids - Henry played 2 concerts while I was there, and I was able to go to both. We thought we were going to lose him when he was born and he had a tough first year, but, truly miraculously, he has become a tall, talented, healthy 18 year-old young man - a young man with a gift for playing the trumpet. And my Abby's applying to med school this year. Am I a shameless proud parent or what! No apologies....

    Congrats. You have every reason to be loud and proud. Glad you are home safe. Too bad it couldn't have lasted longer.
