we feel really fortunate to have made it out of new york city on sunday before crazy sandy came to town. especially since we were told our flight was cancelled just as we were pulling up to the airport sunday afternoon. we got home feeling a bit defeated to find out our flight was never actually cancelled. how we made it back to the airport and onto our plane in 50 minutes (50 minutes!!!!) i haven’t a clue. but we made it. and we feel so grateful.
as we’ve been enjoying our time in italy as a family, we’ve stayed away from phones, computers and internet until this evening, so we’re just hearing now about all that sandy has done to the east coast. i can’t believe it! hope everyone is safe and dry and with the ones they love.
also, happy happy birthday to our bully, mister kingsley, who turns 3 today!!! we really really miss having him with us in the city but are happy he is happy living the good life in virginia.
