Kavanna and Grace!

We had the pleasure of having, Grace, our tour guide from China over for brunch, along with her friend Veronica, who's also a tour guide.  Grace has always wanted to come to the United States, and she finally realized her dream...   We were thrilled to see Grace and meet Veronica!!

A 2012 update

I can hardly believe it's been over a year since I last posted. Here's a picture of me and Kavanna on New Years Eve. She's four years old (going on 24) and she's as happy as ever!

It's been quite a year for us - David had his book The Luminist published, to great reviews (see and went on a countrywide book tour for most of Fall 2010. Ariel is a senior in high school, going to college in New York this coming Fall. I'm finishing up my doctorate in psychoanalysis this May. Kavanna is loving life, dominating our household and definitely on her way towards total world domination. This is the child who, at the age of two years old, commanded me, "Mommy, put your two hands on the wheel," when I reached for a travel mug of coffee.

Yep, at two years old she was already bossing us around. And naturally, she was right; we should always drive with our two hands on the wheel. :)
