On Getting Home

B and I left Provincetown on the first ferry out this morning (see above photo), boarded a JetBlue flight in Boston a few hours later and then found ourselves at O'Hare two hours after that. As we approached our gate after running across the airport to grab the flight that would eventually take us the rest of the way home, Cole and Peyton, who had arrived from Dallas just minutes earlier, snuck up behind me and squeezed me into a hug and instantly I felt better than I had in days. After I introduced them to Bevan they took us to Devin who had been watching their bags while they did their sneaking and the five of us boarded a homebound flight and finished our journey together.
