Dear Anna & Nick

Today I am sending a special thanks to Anna & Nick. These two lovely folks are our landlords and downstairs neighbors... and after living with them for these past 2 and a 1/2 years, they're also our friends. They have grandsons in college, so there's a vast age difference between us yet somehow I feel that we are kindred souls. They appreciate good food, good wine, quiet time outdoors, family, friends... and best of all, they absolutely adore our daughter.

Anna makes homemade Greek cookies and pastries almost every day and will often share her bounty with us. When Grace was little, before she really knew people's names, she would see Anna as we came in the door at the end of the day and point to her while grinning and shouting, "Cookies!" Now that she's a bit older, a few times a week when we come home she runs in the front door and straight into their apartment (the door to their home is often open) while excitedly calling, "Anna Nick! Anna Nick!" And without a moment's hesitation, no matter what we may be interrupting, they both are glad to see us and invite us to stay for coffee and cookies.

To Anna & Nick: thanks for welcoming us into your home and giving us a place of our own to call home... and more than that, thanks for making us feel like part of the family.
