I am a lawyer, born and reared in the Twin Cities. Family is everything to me. My mother I adore and my father I worship (my father is also a lawyer). I have two older brothers whom I love dearly: one, 39, is married and has a young son and daughter and works as a financial analyst; the other is 36 and single and works as a civil engineer. My brothers and I were dispersed for years while being schooled and while establishing careers (Boston, Palo Alto, London, New York; Ames, Fort Collins, Denver; Princeton, Vienna, Washington, D.C., Boston), but we are all home now—and, it is my hope, we are all home for good. The newest member of my family is Joshua, whom I met in Washington while I was in my last year of law school and while Josh was in his last year of undergraduate studies. We immediately became inseparable and have faced the world together practically from the day we met. We have recently returned to the Twin Cities from Boston, where Josh gained his Juris Doctor. We have many interests and participate in numerous and diverse activities, yet we are mostly homebodies, playing sports, reading history tomes (and passionately discussing them) and spending time with family.
Ha! I'll be lucky if I survive tomorrow without sprouting feather and colorful snood. :o)ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving to you both. Don't let any gobbling bird escape from your dining table, ya' hear?
Cheerio from out west,
And I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving as well, Smorg.ReplyDelete
Not much chance of doing some sledding at Thanksgiving in San Diego, is there?
It was a very good one for me indeed, thanks! :o)ReplyDelete
My flatmate and I and another friend/neighbor went to her friend's place 5 blocks away and helped her do away with this huge turkey that she spent all day cooking. I don't know how she did it, but the thing practically melted in your mouth! We got so stuffed that we had to make room for dessert by clearing up her backyard (it was doing too uncanny a job at impersonating a rain jungle).
No chance of sledding down here near the coast, I'm afraid. Though if we're lucky we might get some snowfall up on Mt. Laguna to the east next Monday (a few friends and I are heading up there on Tuesday. Gotta stock up on the famous Julian apple pies!). Then we might get do some sledding. Otherwise we'll just go explore some old gold mines up there. :o)
Have you guys got snow on the ground yet?
Boston received its first snowfall of the year in November, but it was nowhere near as bad as predicted by weather experts.ReplyDelete
