A small metal bird from a local shop where we had the accidental good luck of meeting Kendra, only two degrees of separation from us, both practically and virtually, and whose stunning photography can be seen here.
This beautiful (and ok, slightly macabre) Mel Kadel print from Lawrence's Wonder Fair Gallery.
A new manicure, compliments of my quirky, wonderful, 8-year-old neice Liza.
A framed sketch by my father, quickly becoming one of my favorite artists in the entire state of Maine.
Finally, memories of great and much-too-short chats with Max, Tim, Atty, Bea, Matt, Mom, Jen, Chad, and especially kindred spirit Amy and perfectly complicated David, each of whom is a kind of homecoming.
