Home to many fine letters

Today's pile status: 58

I am overwhelmed (in a warm and lovely way) with all the letters I received while I was away at my grandfather's funeral, including many from blog readers offering condolences. Thank you all so much.

The current tally in the "needs response" pile is 58 (ooh, and I haven't gotten today's mail yet), but a few of those are multiples from the same people. I really look forward to responding to everyone (I've missed letter-writing, I didn't write any at all while away!), but please be patient. I WILL write you back, it just may take a while.

A lovely spread

Coming home to a big batch of letters was such a joy. After all my exhausted unpacking and organizing last night upon my return, I curled up on the couch with a glass of wine and savored every letter.
