Hello, world! Yes, it has been awhile. Sorry about that. But better late than never! What adventures has 2017 cooked up so far?
In the interest of actually finishing a blog post before bed time, I’ll keep this short. Let’s start with…
My brother and sister in law had a baby in February, so in January, the family gathered in San Francisco to eat, drink, and offer unsolicited suggestions for what to name the child. (Spoiler: they did not follow my advice and name the baby “Pantsuit” in honor of Hillary Clinton. Sigh.)
I also got to catch up on some informative reading, courtesy of the home exchange where we stayed.
The visit was also a great chance to walk around the city and learn about its perspective on international events.
Overall, a nice break from DC and a warm-up for our next trip…
