I am ever grateful to live in NYC with my family: Izzy and Jack—my extraordinary kids and Jon, my better half. The photo on the left was the very first family portrait taken after Jack was born. It seems impossible that someone could take a picture of four people and manage to get absolutely no faces in it, but here you go. On the right, summer 2020. Life with college and beyond. Awed and still grateful.

And the gratitude continues for the two adorable, amazing, life-changing rescue pups we are lucky enough to live with. Gracie, the white maltese/poodle, and Moo, the brown mystery mix, bring love and happiness to the table every single day.
