As we enter this season of Thanksgiving, I continue my tradition of posting family photographs from the past year on More to Come…. We have much for which to be thankful in 2018.
This was yet another year unlike any other in the recent history of our country. The level of vitriol coming from some of our so-called leaders has put many on edge and has driven others to do unspeakable horror.
In spite of the turmoil in the world and some significant changes in our lives, we were blessed again this year with good health and good friends. Each of us is doing well.
Shortly after Thanksgiving last year, Candice and David traveled to Providence to hear Andrew solo with the Brown University Chorus in Messiah. While there, we took advantage of the trip to visit some of our favorite haunts in this food-friendly gem of a city.
Of course, each December brings a special celebration of Andrew and Claire. The twins’ birthday is always a major highlight, but given that they reached the 25-year-old milestone in 2017, it was a special event for all of us. We also celebrated the holidays together in Washington, seeing good friends and visiting special places like the evocative Museum of African American Culture and History on the National Mall.
We all have our passions. David has his sports and writing; Candice her cooking and friends; Claire the outdoors and children; and Andrew his music and travel.
Summer brings baseball (and more baseball) along with the Bach Soloists Festival in San Francisco.
We loved our vacation time together as a family at Pacific Grove, California. It was a respite from the hustle of the year.
Fall brought transitions in life for everyone. We gathered with long-time friends, saw Andrew off to graduate school in London, and said good-bye to David’s boss of the past 8 years.
Our family continues to be blessed, and for that we are incredibly thankful. We remain grateful for each of you and the friendships we share. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
More to come…
