Memorial Day weekend was a time for creating new memories, centered on a big family wedding held at the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco. Daughter Anya, her darling and super-smart husband Ryan, their two boys Thomas and Hayes, joined my Dearest, and our sons (Anya’s brothers) Lex and Sam. It is delightful to watch how Anya’s youngest, Hayes (aka The Redheaded Devil), pays her back for all her childhood mischievousness and simultaneously reminds us all of Sam at his age. Life cycles, families come together, we all honor the bonds that draw us close.It’s always a good time to tell someone how much you love them, and to hold them close.
