Renee taught me how to like smoked trout, she opened my world to octopus and made me a preacher of the wonders of oysters.
I’m sitting on our faded white couch alone and in silence; hoping that these quiet moments will reenergize in the way an introvert needs them too after much activity.

Friday Donut (or doughnut) Day! It started sometime last year with the simple act of Gabe picking up doughnuts on Friday and then repeating himself the next week.
