Having family in a few different states means that we travel by air on a semi-regular basis. In our marriage, one of our least favorite tasks is figuring out how to get to and from the airport. Can anyone else relate? We'll book our tickets and then put off asking for a ride for weeks.
That is love.
We'd picked out a pack of lemon coconut curry couscous for B before our departure. Who knew the Iowa City Farmers' Market had gone so global?
Growing up amongst Japanese-American family and friends, a nice thing to do when returning someone's container (from a potluck or party) was to wash it and put a little something inside for them. I'm not sure if it's a true Japanese tradition or more an Asian-American thing (or maybe it's Presbyterian!). Can any readers confirm from their experience?
I just put the couscous in B's container and topped it with a thank-you and a grocery bag pom-pom I had from a past workshop. Simple and quick, perfect gift wrapping for the jet-lagged but grateful.
