It's been a while since I've posted. All I can say is that I've barely been keeping afloat over the past year and a half. So much has changed. I'm trying to embrace it all as just part of life.
Fall is upon us. For me, that's always meant the start of a new school year. I took Mia to my old college campus today.
My mom sent her a birthday card in the mail with a little gift, and we used it for an early morning trip to our favorite bakery.
We ate our croissants with our cups of coffee and milk. I told her about all the books I read while I was studying to become a professor.
I remember how nervous I felt the first time I stepped onto a college campus. I hope that she'll always feel at home. I also hope that she'll feel the same excitement of a new beginning that I still feel at the start of every fall.
Thank you, Gammy, for your special birthday gift. We had a lovely day.
