last week, i called my mom during the day to ask her something quick and she said, "oh honey, i'm about to meet your dad for lunch." maybe it's because i'm a newlywed giving lots of thought to what makes a good marriage (and my parents have an amazing going on thirty-one year marriage), but this stopped me in my tracks. they eat breakfast and dinner most days together and yet, when it works, every now and then, they meet for lunch. when they were newlyweds, they would meet at the city market downtown with packed lunches. i love that.
ryan, see you for lunch in thirty some years and lots of times in between.
