Finally last weekend, I finished composing the last of my papers for Spring semester. That made this weekend the first time we were able to just get away for months. To add to the glorious freedom, I *believe* winter has finally left the building. So we made reservations at a resort south of Anchorage and headed down the Glenn Highway.

Because despite all of the other wonderful things that happened during the weekend, this little man and my husband are my world. Watching him laugh with my husband and find comfort in my arms--those things fill me with joy. E has unlocked a part of myself that I didn't know existed.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you.
