A Casa

Last Friday marked my new cousin, Halsey's arrival in Indianapolis. She was not alone. My Aunt Jing, Uncle Hop, and cousin Piper brought her off the plane after having spent three weeks in China. My parents, who went to greet them, got to see wide-eyed Halsey close up, her first moments off the plane rides from Beijing to Indianapolis, her first few hours on the ground in America.

Antonello and I can't wait to meet you, Halsey. We have been avidly talking about sending a package with pictures of us and fun Italian things for Halsey and Piper to enjoy. It's difficult being far away for the arrival of a new relative. With all of the joy and happiness that Halsey's arrival has brought to our family, I keep thinking, "When will Antonello see her?" While I plan to go home at Christmas and therefore meet little Halsey then, Antonello's next trip to the states is less certain. Christmas is the busy season for shoes, and this summer my family is coming here, so we probably won't take our annual trip back to the states.

But hopefully, with pictures of us and gifts, and even some speaking on the phone, Halsey will begin to recognize her new cousins. Who knows--maybe Antonello can even teach her Italian.

Welcome home, Halsey! We send our love from Italy.

Have you heard Afterhours yet? Their newest cd is pretty awesome, it's called Ballate per piccole iene, (ballad for the little hienas I think) but it's a kick ass rock album, don't walk, RUN to the nearest cd store and buy it! hahaha, well, you can walk, and stop by that little pizza by the slice place on your way there too and grab a slice for me!
