Merci, mes amies

You know when you have a good mail day? You get a letter from your favorite pen pal, an unexpected check, your favorite magazine and the book you ordered online, all together on the same day? I had a good email day yesterday.

One of the nice things about being here is the deeper bonds and more vulnerable emotions you exchange with your friends. I receive some of the sweetest, most supportive messages imaginable. I love it. But of course it’s bittersweet. When I hear “your voices,” I want nothing more than to settle down across a table with you and gab and laugh and drink and eat.

I know I’m so lucky to have you all in my life. Even from afar, I carry your voices with me every day.

(But, god, I miss you!)
