Alumni Weekend

Peter and I have an odd story of meeting, and dating, and marriage. He was from New Orleans. I was from Connecticut. We met at 16, in boarding school.

The even stranger part is that we stayed in the boarding school world, and now we are back at the school where we met, and he is responsible for leading the school.

It was a beautiful moment of return when we led the Alumni parade this year, with Penny at our side. We are the same kids who fell in love 30 years ago. And we are also very different humans now, shaped not only by this school but also by all the intervening years of grace and struggle and love.
