Well, if you're me - and I realize you're not, but just come along for the ride - you head into Chicago to get a dose of some pretty amazing people who love you, no matter what.
Today, I met Koen Alexander Rand. That little guy completely stole my heart, and I really don't want it back. Diane and Justin's family grew from four to five, and I was lucky enough to get a little playtime with each of the kids, a little yarn shopping with Di, and some good-natured pokes at my favorite lawyer, the singular sensation known as Justin "Meat" Rand.
I got to see Eva's new tap shoes and Aidan's stuffed monkey and listen to Koen coo and holler, and there's no way I would have rather spent the day. I wasn't ready to leave when it was time to leave. I miss their hugs and love already.
Koen and Diane. He's so funny and adorable, he cracks me up! Diane is, naturally, one of the most beautiful women on the planet. I'm not sure how she does it, but it sure as hell pisses me off.
