my favorite way to 
travel is with a baguette
strapped to my backpack.


Smooshed in the backseat,
I know how sandwich meat feels.
This is empathy.

A day at the pool<br />Is about one thing only:<br />Mozzarella sticks.

Salt, wine, butter, cheese<br />This is what vacation means<br />To me. And sleep, too.
