Internet, life is good. Here are some of the reasons why.
Kate, far away at Yale, but as close to me as ever. Here we are together ten years ago at her family’s place out in the bush. There’s a working bee going on, and we’re
slacking off making sandwiches for everyone.
Kacey — generous and patient to a fault, and too far away in Ohio. She’s a mad genius behind that sweet smile. She has a whole pack of hounds at her command (though some of them are pretty small). Here she is on our holiday together in Vietnam last year.
Jack, world championship cuddler. He hasn’t worked out that these days he’s too big to fit in my lap. He only has to hear the click of my keyboard and he comes to lie by my feet until I’m done. The perfect writing assistant.
Husband, the funniest, sweetest, most supportive man alive, I’m sure of it. We’ve been together ten years, and I love him more each one. He got me a necklace with a typewriter pendant for my birthday, as well as a pair of steampunk opera glasses. He’s an amazing cook. He offers great critique on my writing. He’s a qualified carpenter and has just finished lining my study with bespoke bookshelves. He’s quite the catch.
Happy Thanksgiving, Internet! Who are you thankful for, this year?
