The blessed internet has made keeping in touch with friends + family across the world virtually painless. I always feel up-to-date with their lives + when we meet again it's like no time has passed. There are times when do I feel the sting of the distance, most notably when a baby comes into the picture. Luckily, little Anthony crossed the Atlantic when he was barely three months old to give his Canadian family snuggles (and photo opps).
He was baptized while he was here, congratulations Anthony!
