A Toast to Family

Jeff and I are getting together again this coming weekend, but this time under more somber circumstances.  Our grandfather passed away and the family is gathering in New Jersey to remember him.  In thinking about my grandfather and his life, I am struck by the importance of my family in my life.  They provide context for the things I enjoy most and, in many ways, define who I am.  I am grateful for what I have learned from my grandfather, both directly from him and through the example that he set for my father.  I am also glad to share the writing of this blog with Jeff, as it gives us a means to connect over a shared effort and hobby, despite the 500 miles that separate us.

So please raise a glass and say a toast to family and its importance in our lives.
