Whipped up a batch of good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie dough to bake off tomorrow for Grandpa Jack’s wake. I can’t quite think of anything more comforting than an embrace from a loved one and a homemade chocolate chip cookie.

Last night, my Grandpa Jack passed away.
It was sudden in the fact that just a few months ago he was still playing tennis and was sharp as a tack. Not so sudden in that he is 92 years old and everything went south pretty quickly.
I was lucky enough to see him last week and say a goodbye of sorts. Lucky that he was lucid and knew who I was and was awake enough when I was leaving to blow me a kiss goodbye.
He was such a kind, smart, and generous man. I’m going to miss him very much.

Celebrating #BastilleDay the best way I know how. Escargot, french onion soup, and a caramel salted butter crepe with peanut butter. This place really is my favorite. #chicago #lacreperie #frenchthings (at LA CREPERIE)
Usually he is purty smart…. #roadtrip #indiana #enroutetoohio (at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store)
