I was lucky to be surrounded by my family for much of this week! One night after work I shared dinner with my mom and aunt Sally (who I get to see far too rarely). It was so nice to catch up and treat ourselves to an indulgent French meal. I also spent the weekend at home with my parents and brother, who is visiting from New York. On Saturday we gathered with family to celebrate my nephew’s bar mitzvah. The next day we relaxed at home. After a nice brunch, we spent some time together remembering my grandmother, Viola. Reminiscing together about her life reminded all of us what a unique and creative woman she was, and I know we’ll all miss her dearly. We finished off the weekend collaborating to cook a delicious summer dinner.
