Into the Spiderverse

Saturday, December 29, 2018

Two enthusiastic thumbs up for Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse.

I feel like this is the first comic book movie that actually feels like a comic book.

Delightful in every way.

Azul

Friday, December 28, 2018

A much needed quiet evening playing card and board games.

Easy casual fun? LOOP, the Chicago train card game.

A bit more complicated but super fun? Azul, a beautiful board game inspired by Portuguese tiles.

Had to keep Floofer out of the wine.

Spontaneous lunch

Thursday, December 27, 2018

Wendy texted, “Just finished up an errand in Cincinnati. Wanna grab lunch?”

I had just finished meetings for the day and replied with an emphatic YES!

We didn’t eat in this parking garage, but around the corner at a favorite taco joint.

Caught our breaths and caught up with life, coloring in all those details that don’t fit neatly in a phone.

The Favourite

Wednesday, December 26, 2018

Blurry photo (it was FREEZING) after a quick gift exchange following a viewing of The Favourite—a movie that made me cackle with laughter and conversely aghast by its darkness. Such an excellent film. Highly recommended.

Not pictured? A canvas print of Kyle with European Fanta in a gilded frame.

Triple Christmas

Tuesday, December 25, 2018

Started Christmas Day at mom’s house and shared a meal that laid a foundation for a day filled with much joy.

Mom’s spirit was very present.

I am so very lucky to be surrounded by loved ones who reflect the light she brought into the world.

Stop #2 — Independence, Kentucky

An excellent photographer, this one.

Stop #3 – Blue Ash, Ohio

Bonus shot: Shadow ignoring laser.

A Georgian Christmas Eve

Monday, December 24, 2018

Spent Christmas Eve with one of my oldest friends and her family.

They’d recently completed a transformation of a dairy barn into a Georgian home.

Remarkable in every detail and a wonderfully warm place to celebrate.

Benihana, twice in one week

Saturday, December 22, 2018

Full beards. Full bellies. Full moon.

I’m good with the Benihana for another year.

And this entirely concludes all celebration of birthday.

Now researching cardio.
