Food, Florence, family What a very special trip this has been. I am besotted with my darling nephew and treasured time with him, my sister, brother-in-law and his family. We all packed much into several days, and I am grateful.

I'm equally happy to be returning to my own crew tomorrow. Tom has done a brilliant job as solo parent, and I am thankful because really, this time to help and support my sister was really wonderful.

I am pooped so am leaving you with some visuals for now. Stories at another time!

Onward home and toward Christmas.
