Heading out to Long Island today, where I have a speaking engagement at the library in Southampton. But my mind is on My Son, who starts his first day of work today. He will be teaching second grade in New Orleans this fall. The next few weeks are for orientation and staff development. He and The Weatherman did a father-son road trip down South, and kept sending photos of the incredible food they were eating. (Shrimp and grits....yum.) Now My Son is now moved into his own apartment and starting this next chapter of his life. Needless to say, I'm a proud Mama.
