I love Christina's comment !

Dear Relyn,

Hope you're feeling a little bit relaxed now workwise and that you can enjoy maybe the Indian summer ? :-)

in your list, i'd definitely pick the "insatiable appetite for life" and the "improvised plans".

Have a great day !!

ps: Sloane looks so cute down below! and eh...you were born in Germany...that's interesting, I wonder whether you speak German.

I do love the alphabet. Words and typography inspire me. In quickly reading some of your other posts, I agree home is where you spent your teenage years and I'm currently struggling with that. My daughter is a second grader this year and is "an eager puppy". What a fun age to teach. I do fear that this will be the last of the "fun years" for her....I hope I'm wrong. Thank you so much for visiting me and it's nice to meet you.

I have always likes the word isotope for no apparent reason.
