(Browning Household Profile)
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.

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.
Isaac Gavigan turns 29 this February, and after a hard night of partying, feels lucky that he gets to carry his very drunk wife home. Lauren is going to feel it in the morning, and Isaac thinks that brunch is in order. He’s really hoping that this year will go slower than the last few have; he feels ill-prepared to turn thirty.

Marshal Krouse (39 years), Lorelei (35 years), Penelope (2 1/2 years)
narrated by: Lorelei
We saved money to get our backyard fenced this spring, and Marshal insisted we needed a garden to teach Penelope the value in nurturing things. I readily agreed, thinking a garden would be less work than a pet, but I may come to eat my own words on that.

narrated by: Emma
Chris turns forty this month, and thought he ought to dye his hair back to natural before he went totally gray. He saw that my cousin, Monroe was rocking a faux hawk of sorts, and he decided that it was time he got more adult hair.
Lainey’s previous update/next update
Elodie Siew celebrates her eleventh birthday this fall. Family continues to play an important part in her life, and she still looks up to her big sister, Scarlett, who is relieved to have someone else help her take care of their little brothers.
Recently minted as a big sister, Mavis celebrates her fourth birthday this summer. Nadia and Luca are both immensely proud of their eldest daughter as she has embraced being a big sister quite quickly, and is full of individuality and spunk.
Like her big brother, Kai she already exhibits a great desire for knowledge and isn’t afraid to show her inexperience or disbelief when someone yanks her chain.
