He’s back off to school, I’m happy and just a little sad.

So amazing to have Sam home for the break.  He is in NYC with his Dad this weekend to run a 1/2 marathon, then home overnight, and back to school.   So beautiful, my beautiful boy.  Always a blessing to have him, happy and proud to see him off into the world but a littleContinue reading “He’s back off to school, I’m happy and just a little sad.”

Sophie and I are learning French!
