The day after Christmas my husband's cousin called inviting us to visit her Friday. I can't wait to meet her, but on the other hand natural I'm nervous. I've actually only talked to her once, on the phone, at 2:30 in the morning. No big emergency, that is just the time it was convenient for her to call. She lives in New York, and until recently lived in Manhattan. I haven't had much positive experience meeting my husband's family. I will spare you the details, but they have certainly made me nervous about meeting other new members of the family. Fortunately his family and I get along very well, now that they gotten to know me and I understand them.
While we are going to New York I'm going to visit my friend who lives there too, not to far from my husband's cousin. I have a couple of bowls and plates to give her for her daughter. They are all toddler sized, and her daughter just turned one.
