Congratulations, Dr. Kim!

That is a really adorable family picture. I love leon's raincloud paints!

Good luck with packing and moving. Moving to a new city, let alone a new country is really difficult. I hope it all goes smoothly.

I'm really happy that you're back to blogging.

we just started packing books. it's scary to see just how many books were added to our library during the past 8 years. and to think i arrived in cambridge with just two boxes of books.

I check back in every now and then to see if you've returned -- so glad you're back. You've always been one of my favorite bloggers, Erica.

The photos are lovely...Leon reminds me a bit of Dennis the Menace in this photo (just the striped shirt and stance!).

Hello
I am a long-time reader and cannot be more glad that you are blogging again. I used to live in Boston and am now living in Toronto. It is a lovely city with many small town moments. I hope you enjoy your new city and please keep blogging!

PS: Shopping is not as great here. More pricey, limited availability and high tax. If you have anything you were contemplating to buy I would say grab it before crossing the border. Many Canadians make a trip to US to shop.

Hi Erica, my name is Monica. I came across your blog some time back and followed it because of your great taste and appreciated the links :) I just wanted to send you warm welcomes to Canada, and a heads up that you can find Chimala in Toronto at Lileo on Mill St. Best of luck!
