I really loved having my brother here.
It's been hard to write much about the time...
he and I are very close
and having him here makes his Maui home feel like it's on the other side of the universe
and not just the other side of the world.
It used to be just about missing him.
But then he goes and marries this wonderful woman
who would love walking with me
and would teach me yoga
and share her bambino with me if she lived nearby.
She is lovely
and - oh my - she really adores my brother.
Don't even get me started on how cute the almost-one-year-old addition
to their lives is.
He and I had so much fun with
magnets on the fridge,
and dishwasher loading
and opening and closing things
and, of course,
smiling for the camera!
I'll just keep looking at photos
and try to chase away my big ol' case of the grumpies.
This little face should help, don't you think?
