If We Were Having Coffee: Mother’s Day Edition

library coffee shop 004If we were having coffee, I would say that it’s nice to have a chance to chat with you again. I’ve been out of communication for a while. The reasons aren’t all that important. A lot has been happening in the past several weeks. While things will be sporadic for a while, I’ll be filling you in on the changes and surprises that have been coming our way. In the meantime, I’m just glad to have this chance to reconnect over a cup of coffee. I’ve missed blogging and connecting with the bloggers I communicate with, but the great thing about this medium is that it’s always here when you have the chance to come back.

As Taiwan is 12 hours ahead of the east coast of the US, I don’t usually hear from my children until the later part of Mother’s Day here. But this year, Tom surprised me and changed his current Facebook profile to this picture from his wedding almost seven years ago. I am so surprised and delighted by his thoughtful gesture.

And I would invite you once again to check out my daughter-in-law’s blog. Megan is Tom’s wife, and she has been doing her food-based blog for over five years. Even though I’m partial, I really enjoy her restaurant and product reviews, her recipes, and tales of some of her other adventures. I’ve mentioned Megan’s blog before, but I’m especially excited about the post below.


Actually, I just read about it again, because I was so excited the first time I read it a couple months ago, that I didn’t read it very carefully. If you check out her post, you’ll understand why.

Megan and Tom are expecting their first child!

As it turns out, they are correct. Logan’s new cousin will be a little boy!

Wishing you all the best as you and Tom await your precious son in late August.
SEVEN days to 60!
