I thought it was time I got a job now that I’m fourteen, fifteen in four months. The only places in Millwood that hire fourteen year olds though is the pizza joint. I asked Dad to take me, and then he stood awkwardly at the entrance, acting like he was lost.
Thankfully Clayton ignored him, and he offered me a job! I can’t wait to have some of my own money to spend on craft supplies and seeing a movie with Elodie.
Once I started though, my confidence sunk. I couldn’t figure out the cash register, which was embarrassing on its own, but Ezra Gavigan saw me make a fool of myself, and he’s pretty cute!

Our wedding gift from Nico’s parents was their family restaurant. His older brother Enzo had left the business years before, and Nico had been the one learning the ropes. They had loyal customers, but Nico felt it could really compete with the Red Mill with a renovation.
Logan and Kai celebrate their birthday this month. They walk home from school, and empathize with eachother about their crazy sisters. Logan always wins the most pity with Mallory; she’s been throwing more tantrums than ever since their Mom got married.
Logan doesn’t think it’d be bad if his Mom had another baby, but Mallory swears she’ll run away if she does. Kai doesn’t even know what to say, he’s always been happy with his little sisters, and loved his step Dad Luca too.

Luca (34 years), Nadia (33 years), Kai (13 years), Mavis (6 years), Thea (2 years), Clio (2 years)
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.
january birthdays 2030
The youngest of the Krouse family turns one this January. Otto is rather shy and serious just like his Dad. Thankfully he’s pretty happy to entertain himself, which makes it easier for Lorelei and Marshal to get dinner on the table.
Penelope talks with classmates on the computer after school, while Otto eats toys more than playing with them.

The forecast was supposed to be clear until the evening, but they awoke to chilly showers with a near brutal breeze. Erin was relieved that she’d trusted her gut and changed the venue.
