Tomorrow the fam and I are heading back up to my grandparents’ land, the place that inspired Bittersweet. It’ll be icy and frigid and snowy, a far cry the idyllic summer escape it’ll be in just a few months. I’m looking forward to a few days of quiet, away from the bustle of book promotion, and working on my new book, away from internet (which means I won’t be posting agin until next week), away from packing school lunches and pre-K drop-off and thinking of the winter as an insurmountable foe. I’m looking forward to being in a place I’ve known loved my whole life.
