We started our morning with a trip to my dad’s building’s gym and roof, followed by the most insanely beautiful drive to Iowa. We met my mom, grandma, sisters, and nephew at the winery where my sister works, followed by really good Thai food and boozy shakes at Red Robin. Another friend had arrived by the time we were done with that (my fave Canadian, accompanied by me wearing a Canadian flag shirt all day?, Happy Canada Day!), and a third a little later. So my mom, my former roommate, and I stayed up, yet again, later than I’d meant to, drinking wine and catching up.
