Happy weekend, my friends.
I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for ages. Today we’re showing the kids our new vacation home on the Cape for the first time (we closed on the property yesterday– this is the happy surprise I alluded to earlier in the month).
Some of my happiest memories were made in Harwich; it thrills me that Grace and baby Nick will get to make similar memories finding hermit crabs at low tide, devouring Sundae School ice cream after dinner, swimming with their cousins, and racing around the backyard with Clark.
I couldn’t feel luckier in this moment.
After a quick trip over the bridge, we’ll be back in the city for baby Nick’s baptism. At 10 months and 20 lbs., I fear we might need several priests and nuns to help hoist him over the font. We’ll see. I can’t wait to share this occasion with our family. Grace is especially excited for “wearing party shoes and being quiet at church!” Again: we’ll see.
It feels so good to be occupied by happy things, and to have family and friends to share them with. Wishing you and yours the same.
