i grew up in a suburb of LA, so am i daily struck with

the beautiful, rural landscape and animals around us.

i wonder if my boys will appreciate it?

i hope i can help them notice the small, lovely things wherever we are.

from rachel denbow of smile and wave is

staci (aka vinny’s mom).

congrats staci!! i know you’ll put it to good use.

email me and we’ll work out details.


we are in LA for a sedated echo for david.

we plan to schedule heart surgery this summer and this is the first step.

i need to ask a lot of questions, up until now i’ve been in denial.

and after the echo we might make a quick visit to mickey mouse’s pad.

happy wednesday!!
