whit came to visit this past week as ry has been much more absent than present due to work. it was so very wonderful to have her companionship this week and it meant the world to me that she drove all the way here. and lily could not have been more thrilled. lily keeps saying, "where's my whit?" (note the supposed ownership there!) and saying, "hopefully she'll come back soon." thank you whit. we miss you so much already.
