Dear Kylara,
I’ve missed your legendary impatience these past few months. No one else can quite keep pace with me.

How’s life in Spain treating you? We have holidays right now. Nope, didn’t mean to rub that in. I wouldn’t mind if you raced back to yell at me in person. I’m not the only one who would like that. Starin misses his daily tummy scratcher. I can never seem to find his tickle spot. I was thinking about the time we snuck him and ourselves into the club pool after hours. The weather over here is certainly making me want to do that again.

Your mother told me about how you were finding it difficult to find vegan food in Granada, so I’m sending a few packages of ready-to-make Quinoa. Now you can live off something besides tapas. They’re easy to make. I promise. I don’t want you cursing me with a pan in hand- just as much for your sake as mine.

You know something strange? I can feel your presence hanging around every time I visit our favorite park. I told you we didn’t have to carve your initials into a tree for that to happen.
Can’t wait to hear about your adventures abroad.

Sincerely,
Ari
