One of my favorite things to do lately is go back and look at travel photos from the last few years. Sometimes I can’t even believe how many places we’ve been. Funny how time gives you perspective, because I definitely remember feeling like we didn’t travel enough, and yet now I look back and think it’s incredible how much we’ve been able to see. This photo above was from a trip to Barcelona with my mom and brothers, for my brother Tucker’s 30th birthday.
As I see more people getting vaccinated, including family and friends, it gives me such a sense of relief. I know we are not out of the woods yet but I am finally starting to feel like there is a light at the end of a very long tunnel. I actually think about travel now, and where we might bring Marin on her first trip (though we have to figure out her motion sickness first, poor thing). Honestly I am not even in a rush to go anywhere, just the fact that it feels like a possibility soonish makes me happy. It doesn’t take much these days that’s for sure.

I finally ordered this Sezane blazer I’ve been eyeing forever and I LOVE it. I wanted a classic, camel blazer that wasn’t too fitted or too big. It looks like a custom tailored blazer and the fabric is structured but not stiff. Sezane sizing is kind of all over the place but the blazer is true to size.
There is no cure for grief, but there are ways to cope with it.
We’d basically take any advice Shonda Rhimes gives.
