One down, one to go.

Today we awoke to the sun and the enormous trees outside the cottage in the woods. We are in McKinleyville, CA, right outside Arcata, where Emily moved into her college dorm today. After a delicious lunch at Adel’s all together, we purchased linens and lamps she needed. We lined her drawers, hung up her clothes, fluffed her pillow and hugged her hard. A hui hou…till we see you again. Our daughter zoomed from Pre-school to college!

I sat on the deck thinking about the past 18 years…I’m very happy how everything turned out.  I’ve had excellent role models from Baltimore, California, Texas and Oahu.

Our adventure continues this weekend as we drive back to San Francisco to relax and show Tara the city. Stay tuned.

Tara misses Emily too…they will always share a bond and sister-love.
