The last few years had brought a great deal of chaos to the Browning household. Nadia’s bookstore would celebrate its fourth anniversary in May, and it finally seemed to be making a steady income. They weren’t going to retire like a Rockfeller this lifetime, but it was enough.

Kai had started working part-time, mostly the weekends. His Mom didn’t mind if his friends stopped by as long as they weren’t rowdy. Books were a shared passion for Kai and his Mom, and he didn’t mind helping out; it didn’t hurt that it gave him an income to spend on more books.

Dr. Morgan had ordered Nadia to be induced the next day, but the twins were on their way during the early morning hours. Kai and Mavis had already been dropped off at Erin’s house in preparation for the next morning, and they had been thoroughly enjoying their night without kids. Probably too much enjoyment, as the twins were now en route.

narrated by: Nadia

Luca has thoroughly enjoyed raising Mavis, and teaching her things that Kai already knew when we started dating. Unfortunately, I don’t think Mavis got the memo, and she’s often rather distracted when he’s trying to impress onto her something great like a nursery rhyme.

narrated by: Nadia

Mavis joined our family, and it feels like she’s always been apart of it. Everything is different from when Kai was a baby, I raised him alone without his Dad coming by much, and now I have Luca who helps out above and beyond. She is such a happy gem, just like Kai had been, which I take full credit for, and Luca is happy to oblige me. I’ve been told he was rather melancholy and soulful as a child, and so far that is not Mavis.

summer birthdays 2023

june 2023

Reed and Caroline Welsh’s oldest son, Alex celebrates his eleventh birthday. He had been a surprise that landed a rushed wedding. But they’ve been making the best of it the past few years, and are happy out in Millwood in their new house.

Alex was rather anti-social in grade school, and still prefers reading over spending time with people.

My Everything (Browning – Traver Wedding)

Luca Traver (28 years), Nadia (27 years), Kai (7 years)

The guests were arriving, the skies were clear with the sound of baby birds nesting far above in the ancient trees. Nadia was no longer concerned about what guests had arrived, and if there would be enough cake for everyone, she could only live in this moment. It felt that they’d worked towards this for years, from Luca first pining for her, and Lorelei had tried being a wingman. Yet it seemed surreal.
